Tatiana Grant is a metro-Detroit native, who has had an entrepreneurial spirit since a young age. This spirit started with a Kool-Aid stand and expanded to a home business of doing hair and nails, under the age of 10. Her family instilled hard work and education, which sparked her work ethic and academic performance. Her past experience allowed her to gain positions at some of the nation and region’s leading companies. After working in the corporate world, she pondered the idea of starting her own public relations and event planning company, and Infused PR and Events was formed. Luckily, Grant had built up a strong network of friends, family and acquaintances who supported her and her business ventures. Infused PR & Events (www.infusedpr.com) offers premier public relations and event planning services to celebrities, small businesses, non-profits and corporations.
Under Grant’s influence and execution, Infused manages sponsorship relations for clients and has managed approximately $5M for clients (to date). The company has also grown its client base from professional athletes (the only clients at first) to small businesses, nonprofits and corporations.
Additionally, the Infused team has secured local and national media placement for clients.

A self-proclaimed “foodie”, Grant decided to turn an idea into reality in 2013 after realizing she needed dinner delivered to her; it was a cold, rainy night. After doing research, she discovered this could turn into a viable business venture. The concept of Flash Delivery (www.flashdeliverymi.com) was born. Flash Delivery is a restaurant and grocery delivery service, focused on downtown Detroit. She tested the concept by applying to the D: Hive Build (business plan incubator program) and graduated winter 2013. Flash launched February 2014 and services downtown Detroit employees, residents and out-of- town guests.
