No stranger to innovation, Michigan is home to brands like Cadillac and Chevy as well as more than 870,000 small businesses. And for its nearly 10 million residents, the state is also home to the most extensive freshwater shoreline in the nation, the longest suspension bridge between anchorages in the Western Hemisphere, and 101 state parks.
And from Henry Ford’s implementation of the moving assembly line and the two-day weekend to Donald Keck’s development of the first fiber optic wire now used in telecommunications, great minds from the Great Lakes State continue to drive innovation and revolutionize industry.
Small businesses comprise 99.6 percent of Michigan’s businesses, and nearly half of residents who work in the private sector are employed by small business owners. Michigan’s business-friendly environment has supported small business growth, and opportunities abound in the automobile, manufacturing, and cybersecurity industries.
In Michigan, most small business owners are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Michigan workers’ compensation helps protect small businesses when an employee gets injured at the workplace. Workers’ comp provides pay and medical benefits to employees who have a work-related injury.
