Community Partners

Michigan Celebrates Small Business recognizes entrepreneurial companies throughout the state. It’s also important to promote these companies’ hometowns and the organizations that support them every day. To that end, MCSB invites communities to join the celebration and to lift their companies up as a standard for what it means to be a “Michigan company.” These Community Partners are non-profit organizations, government agencies, local municipalities that can be found wherever Michigan companies do work, seek information or find kinship. They provide companies with support and opportunities, such as being nominated for Michigan Celebrates awards.
