Jennyfer Crawford-Williams is known as the Queen of Small Business Advocacy and founder of Ask Jennyfer & All Things Detroit.

event space and small business center based in Corktown.
Jennyfer Crawford is a risk-taker. In 2014, she stepped out on her own to run her business – Ask Jennyfer – full-time.
In many ways, she did so without a net.
With about $1,500 in the bank, she forged ahead and grew a reputable brand marketing firm that now represents more than 250 small businesses and draws more than 12,000 guests to successful small business showcase events like All Things Detroit.
“What inspires me most are fellow entrepreneurs or people who risk it all for something they believe in,” said Crawford.
That’s precisely her story.
Crawford, a 2016 recipient of Crain’s Detroit Business’ 40 Under 40 honor, initially found her profession by accident.
With a fine blend of formal business practices and in-the-trenches experience and execution, Ask Jennyfer aims to parlay our expertise as well as proprietary approaches to help small business owners start or grow their business to the next level.
