Entrepreneurial Insider Recap – March 24, 2017
The 4th Friday of every month we host our Entrepreneurial Insider segment on WGVU Radio with local entrepreneurs and the business leaders who support them. This month we were joined by Darryl Todd, Business Development Specialist of Muskegon Area First, Co-Coordinator of Muskegon Business Resource Team and our CEO, Bonnie Nawara, talking about the upcoming Muskegon Business Resource Connect event.
Muskegon Business Resource Connect | Tuesday, April 25, 7:30am – 10am
GROW is excited to work with the Muskegon Business Resource Team on their event Business Resource Connect.

This particular event will provide:

Business Resource Connect is collaboration at its finest, and GROW is very excited to be involved.
