Free Digital Resources

In the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, business owners told us that they needed on-demand resources that they could access 24/7 to help them resolve key issues facing their businesses. We created an internship program, the DNEP +Impact Studio for Local Business, to do just that. What follows is a list of free images, videos, calculators, and guides that anyone can download for free any time. Please credit the University of Michigan +Impact Studio for Local Business if using them in a presentation.
