U-M secures grant to assist Detroit entrepreneurs

The U-M Center on Finance, Law and Policy, run by faculty director Michael Barr, has received a $125,000 grant from JPMorgan Chase for the Detroit Neighborhood Entrepreneurs Project.

The project, an interdisciplinary initiative involving the University of Michigan’s Law School, Ross School of Business and Stamps School of Art & Design, helps Detroit neighborhood-based small businesses navigate a range of growth challenges including incorporation, intellectual property protection, automation and more.

Student and faculty teams provide individual, direct service to entrepreneurs to address their most pressing business needs.
