Creating a great environment to support entrepreneurs isn’t just about low tax rates.  If that was the case, Michigan would be number one – we exempt small business from paying our corporate income tax.

Entrepreneurs also need talent (Michigan ranks below average in education attainment), infrastructure (Michigan has some of the worst roads in the nation) and quality support programs for entrepreneurs (Michigan has many, but they’re uneven in quality).
