The Right Place launches a diverse business directory
GRAND RAPIDS, MI – The Right Place has launched an online business directory highlighting more than 1,200 West Michigan businesses owned by women, people of color, veterans and people who identify as gay, bisexual or transgender.
“Through our work with the Greater Grand Rapids business community, our team was able to identify a significant disconnect between minority-owned businesses in the region and businesses seeking to diversify their supply chains,” said Tim Moroz. , senior vice president of strategic initiatives for The Good Place.
“We hope this directory will provide a way to bridge that gap, making this relationship a smoother process for everyone.”
The Right Place is a Grand Rapids-based economic development organization serving Kent, Barry, Montcalm, Ionia, Ottawa, Allegan, Newaygo, Mecosta, Mason, Muskegon, Oceana, Lake and Osceola counties.

Various businesses located in the 13 county area of The Right Place that wish to be listed in the directory can provide their information here.
The list is restricted to businesses that are at least 51% owned by women, people of color, veterans, and people who identify as gay, bisexual, or transgender. The list is open to companies from all sectors of the economy.
