Community Highlight - Lansing Built to Last

We are excited to run a monthly Quotes for a Cause campaign. Each month, our agency will be donating $5 per new business quote to a nonprofit or charitable organization, regardless of whether or not the policy is actually purchased.

For February's Quotes for a Cause, we will be supporting Lansing Built to Last (LBTL). LBTL invites all entrepreneurs and idea-makers to submit their disaster-resistant business proposals for the opportunity to win a year’s worth of services to help launch their business. Ideas must require a physical space downtown, must withstand shutdowns, and must enhance the community that surrounds it.

We've banded together with several local organizations to strengthen Downtown Lansing - especially when times get tough. We want to find businesses that bring people together, even when we’re apart. That’s why we pooled together our ideas and resources to award the winning business a suite of crucial services to get them up and running through their first year of operation.

First place will receive a location in Downtown Lansing and will have several of their expenses covered for the first year, from rent to legal counsel to IT services. If you’re a lifelong resident who’s always had a great idea and wants their community to thrive, this competition is for you. Now could be the time to start your very own business—with a whole portfolio of support to make it succeed.
