One&All is a program for people who want to start or grow a business but lack the necessary financial resources and network relationships.
One&All is an inclusive entrepreneurship program designed to increase successful entrepreneurship and small business ownership among underrepresented populations including people of color, women, persons with disabilities, immigrants, military veterans, racial or ethnic minority groups and refugees and returning citizens across Clinton, Eaton, Ingham and Shiawassee counties who fall at and below the Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) threshold, commonly known as the working poor. ALICE households earn more than the Federal Poverty Level but less than the basic cost of living for the state.
One&All offers participants a unique combination of business and communication training, coaching and mentoring in a 2-month program, while also connecting participants with a professional network and financial assistance—all of which are common obstacles to success for entrepreneurs and small-business owners from underserved populations.
The One&All program information packet includes an informational flyer, application review process and criteria, eligibility and program priority information, frequently asked questions and application questions in one handy packet!
One&All is an initiative designed and provided by the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP) and is funded by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and Consumers Energy Foundation. LEAP is non-governmental non-profit organization serving the economic development needs of Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties Michigan.
