The fourth edition of this directory provides an overview of various financing sources available to food-related businesses in Michigan and across the United States.

This directory is a partial listing of what may be available across the United States; some examples may not be a good match with your particular circumstances. The format for this directory was initially informed by a listing of funding resources for food-related businesses found on the Food+Tech Connect website, a media and research company building a network for food innovators and entrepreneurs (foodtechconnect.com).

Many of the funding sources listed in this directory are available for local food-related businesses across the United States, but several additional funding websites are specifically for Michigan. All the information for each funding entity has been researched through its own website.

The directory is divided into several category sources: crowdfunding, start-up accelerator resources, miscellaneous resources, and additional sources of funding information. Each entity listed under these four categories will have the title of an entity, a URL of its website, a description of how it works, funding focus, funding limit, qualifications, and the entity’s financial geographic area.
