The LaunchDETROIT committee selected Detroit Women of Color, Inc. to be a member of their 2017 Class of Entrepreneurs. A Committee of the Rotary District 6400 Foundation, LaunchDETROIT strives to develop successful entrepreneurs, especially women, who have limited access to financial and business resources.

• Free small business training: 10 classes of 3 hours each
• Micro-loans $1,000 to $2,500 each
• An assigned mentor from the business community
• Networking opportunities
