Why We're Here

Founder & CEO Millie Chu’s Story

It began several decades ago, when a young couple, Chiu Wing and Mon Ner Chu, immigrated from China to the United States with little to their name. They barely spoke English, lived in a distressed neighborhood, and did not know where to get help. They came to the United States with 2 small children, and one on the way.

Through relentless tenacity and perseverance, they built their first company within 7 years and created dozens of jobs for Americans and immigrants.


Together we can empower new business owners, allowing communities across Michigan and the globe to thrive.
