Detroit Neighborhood Entrepreneurs Project Courses

November 18, 2022

Each semester, the CFLP’s Detroit Neighborhood Entrepreneurs Project recruits hundreds of Detroit small businesses to work with U-M students in course-long projects that address business’ legal, financial, operational, marketing, or design challenges. Students gain consulting experience working with minority-owned businesses in a spirit of reciprocity and mutual respect, and business owners gain thought partners in pursuing data-driven solutions to their biggest challenges.
