Small Business Grants Detroit MI
Would-be entrepreneurs often ask us: Where can I get find grants to start a business? And, sadly, some of these individuals pay big money to attend business financing seminars that travel from city to city talking enticingly about “free” government money for your business. All you have to do is pay these folks up front and they will fill out some paperwork for you to apply for these “grants.”
Trouble is, the rare few that are available are so highly specialized in research fields that the odds of getting them are astronomical. In practical terms, it is a dead end. Forget about government grants to start a new business. It won’t happen.
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) gets the same question daily at their small business Answer Desk. And their response is always the same: “The SBA does not offer grants to start or expand small businesses.”
But here’s the good news, and one of the best-kept secrets in the cutthroat world of venture financing. It’s called the Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) program, and it has provided nearly $30 billion in financing (both loans and equity investments) to 90,000 small businesses since 1958.
This program is for real. And while it is still going strong, it maintains a low profile by design, so the folks who manage the funds that invest in small companies don’t get totally devoured by cash-hungry entrepreneurs.

In the Doctor's Office: Recovery Friend or Foe?
Dates: 5/21/2013 - 5/21/2013
Location: St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center
Educational Center Auditorium
“In the Doctor's Office: Recovery Friend or Foe?” will be presented on Tuesday May 21, 2013; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Dr. Mark A. Weiner, MD; Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine; and Matthew Statman, LLMSW, CADC; Dawn Farm therapist and Education Series Coordinator. It's been said that the doctor’s office is a dangerous place for people in recovery from addiction. It's also been said that recovering people are terrible patients. This program will discuss whether these statements are fair and why doctors and other healthcare providers are essential allies for long term recovery. We will describe in detail how recovering people can take responsibility for their physical health and how to recruit health care providers as allies. This program is part of the FREE, annual Dawn Farm Education Series. Our presentations offer helpful, hopeful, practical information that supports people with alcohol and other drugs addiction in achieving, maintaining, and strengthening their recoveries. The series educates family members on issues relating to addiction and its effect on the family, and offers information that will be useful for family members and friends in relating to people with alcohol and other drug addiction whether they are actively using or in recovery. Professionals and students will also benefit from this pertinent information. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is offered for each program. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services. For information, please contact Matt Statman, LLMSW, CADC, Education Series Coordinator, at 734-485-8725 or email@example.com, or see http://www.dawnfarm.org/programs/education-series.
