Several Detroit businesses have made the semi-finals of a national, small-business grant contest. "The FedEx Small Business Grant Contest will award $25,000 and $7,500 in FedEx Office print and business services to one grand prize winner," writes Stephanie Steinberg in an article for the Detroit News
15 Detroit businesses have made it this far, but are competing against approximately 1,000 others nationally. After a round of voting that narrows the total to 100, FedEx will announce the three winners on April 25.
One of the local businesses profiled in the Detroit News piece is Detroit Bridal House
, a clothing store that sells wedding gowns. "If she wins, London says she'll use the funds to move into a building on Livernois' Avenue of Fashion or in Woodbridge or Midtown."
Voting period for The FedEx Small Business Grant Contest ends April 5.
