The MSU Center for Regional Food Systems has recently published an online document entitled “New Funding Sources for Food Related Businesses.” This publication provides an overview of various sources of financing available to food hub and local food-related businesses, with a particular focus on what may be available to Michigan businesses.  The paper describes and discusses different categories of financing sources including: crowdfunding, startup accelerator funds, and miscellaneous resources, as well as additional Federal sources of funding information.
