🧪 Yoga, science businesses cut the ribbon
Two very different businesses — an "inclusive" yoga studio and an educational subscription box maker — celebrated their openings in the city this month.
The intrigue: Welcome Home Yoga & Wellness and the Lab Drawer are connected through awards from Motor City Match (MCM).
- Mayor Mike Duggan's long-running entrepreneur funding vehicle provides matching grants to help finance brick-and-mortar storefronts.
- The businesses both held ribbon-cuttings with city officials after participating in the program, per press releases.
- Welcome Home, which got $40,000 through MCM, offers yoga, meditation, massages and other services with an emphasis on accessibility for LGBTQ+ community and others. It's at 6375 W. Seven Mile Road, Suite 103.
- The Lab Drawer got $50,000 to set up shop in the Durfee Innovation Society building in Dexter-Linwood. The business makes monthly boxes for kids ages 10-14 that contain experiments mixing science and technology with arts and innovation.
