Serial Entrepreneur, Investor, Marketer, Philanthropist, Connector, Mother and Believer
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 experiences 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 & Events was formed. Luckily, Grant had built up a strong network of friends, family and acquaintances who supported her and her business ventures.
Grant's prior "corporate" experience includes: managing events and fundraising for the Braylon Edwards/Foundation, Dwight Smith Foundation, Detroit Economic Club, Michigan State Fair, and the Parade Company; media relations for the North American International Auto Show, public relations for retail developer, The Taubman Company, The Palace Sports & Entertainment (Detroit Pistons and Shock), WEMU, and Court TV; community relations for WJBK-TV Fox 2; marketing research and development for automotive supplier, Reynolds & Reynolds; and external relations for the Detroit Super Bowl XL Host Committee. The skills she has perfected while working at these various companies have been instrumental in the company's success.

A self-proclaimed "foodie", Grant decided to turn an idea into reality 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 was born. Flash Delivery is Detroit’s first food delivery service.
Renaissance Mom is a lifestyle brand focused on motherhood, multitasking, and balance. A play on the term, "Renaissance Man". Renaissance Mom is all about celebrating women who do it all. Mommy magic, aka making sure everything is taken care of in and out of the home, is just one of Renaissance Mom’s many talents. Our signature shirt marks the year "Moms" ventured into motherhood.
The idea came out of necessity, and the team was assembled. Our team of “holiday helpers” provide gift wrapping, pick-up and delivery, gift assembly and personal shopping services.
Grant graduated cum laude and holds a Master's in Public Relations from Michigan State University and a Bachelor's of Science (with honors) in Public Relations from Eastern Michigan University. She has received numerous awards that include: 20 in their 20s by Crain's Detroit Business, the Next Gen: Entrepreneur of the Year by the Michigan Black Chamber of Commerce, L. Brooks Patterson's Elite 40 Under 40 Award, Michigan Front Page's 30 Under 40, Michigan State University Graduate Scholar Award, among many others.
