GROW is an Official Charity Partner of Gazelle Girl and has been for years. We are a non-profit organization focused on entrepreneurs at various stages of business ownership, from an initial idea and launch to strategic planning, business loans and mentorship through every facet of business ownership.
We empower women (and men) entrepreneurs to launch, advance, and sustain their businesses. Our main office in downtown Grand Rapids hosts training classes and business counseling meetings daily. In 2018 we expanded to add a full-time business development specialist in the Muskegon Innovation Hub (the HUB) at Grand Valley State University in Muskegon. In 2019 we will celebrate our 30th year serving startups and entrepreneurs throughout west Michigan.
Funds raised through Gazelle Girl are a critical part of our funding to provide low and no-cost services to entrepreneurs from every walk of life, throughout our community. Help us support these startups and small businesses every step of the way, with every step you run in Gazelle Girl 2019.
