VENTURE NORTH SEEKS CANDIDATES FOR POSITION

TO HELP NW MICHIGAN SMALL BUSINESSES

Venture North is seeking candidates for a new position that will have a lead role in the success of northwest Michigan small businesses within the 10-county region.  The purpose of the Business Development Manager position will be to work at a grass-roots level to identify businesses that need loans and other forms of help to achieve priorities. 

“I hope we receive applications from qualified people from all counties where we do business,” said Venture North President Laura Galbraith.  “Because the work involves our entire region, the person in the position will work from a home and mobile office.”

This new team position will have a crucial role in helping more small businesses in the region.   It will require a good listener and learner and an individual that can build trust and strong relationships.  Small businesses are the dominate economic force in our region and every one of them are different.  The solutions we develop must be done in partnership with each business and often involve local organizations.  While the individual will work independently, they are also part of the Venture North team that works together to make good things happen for this very special part of Michigan!

Venture North hopes to fill the position in September 2021.
