The Right Place launches diverse business directory

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — The Right Place has launched an online business directory highlighting more than 1,200 West Michigan businesses owned by women, people of color, veterans and individuals who identify as gay, bisexual or transgender.

“Through our work with the Greater Grand Rapids business community, our team was able to identify a significant disconnect between minority-owned businesses in the region and companies seeking to diversify their supply chains,” said Tim Moroz, senior vice president of strategic initiatives for The Right Place.

“It is our expectation that this directory will provide a means of bridging that gap, making this relationship-building a simpler process for all.”

The Right Place is a Grand Rapids-based economic development organization that serves Kent, Barry, Montcalm, Ionia, Ottawa, Allegan, Newaygo, Mecosta, Mason, Muskegon, Oceana, Lake and Osceola counties.
