#OTGYpsi: Ypsilanti Becoming Prime Location For Potential Food Entrepeneurs

Dec 4, 2019

Growing Hope is among the top food entrepeneurships in the Ypsilanti area.  Yet, like all startup businesses, it takes time, patience, and good financial planning to get off the ground.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Lisa Barry and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg have a conversation with Cynthia VanRenterghem, Growing Hope's executive director, and with Angela Barbash, CEO of the investment advisory firm Revalue, about the work and rewards involved in becoming a food entrepeneur.
