Train the Trainer Webinars
Our Train the Trainer webinars educate community partners so they can become supporters and resources to Native entrepreneurs and business owners.
The community partners we want to reach could be Native organizations in tribal communities or on reservations, but they could also be non-Native business organizations who serve or partner with Native individuals, tribes, or communities. A community partner might be any of the following:
- Small Business Development Centers
- Native CDFIs
- Women's Business Centers
- Tribal government educators
- SCORE business mentors
- Economic development trainers
