LANSING, Mich (WLNS) — There are five finalists in the first ever Lansing Built to Last competition.
It’s an idea that formed in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Leaders in mid-Michigan saw the devastating impact the virus and related shutdowns were having on small businesses and wanted to help find a way to help them succeed.

She believes children are a core part of any community and has come up with a business idea offering a monthly subscription box cooking club and culinary classes.
