The GreenLight Business Model Competition (GBMC) is an early-stage pitch competition bringing together entrepreneurs and small business supporters from across Michigan. Finalists of the competition pitch ideas to a panel of expert judges for an opportunity to network with angel and venture capital investors statewide.
