Empowerment Workshops

Due to travel- and health-related concerns in regard to COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), the Empowerment Workshops have been postponed until further notice. Please check-in at this site for rescheduled trainings.

Our #nativeSBA training team has designed a new and culturally appropriate curriculum for the Native Business Development Empowerment Workshops, and we are excited to bring this learning opportunity to you. You have the chance to join us at one of 20 different locations across Indian Country as our workshops take place during 2020.

The Empowerment Workshops gather a unique community of Native entrepreneurs, new and experienced business owners, and trainers. At a workshop, you have the opportunity to:

  • Meet peers and colleagues—people like you who are on the journey of founding their own small business
  • Connect face-to-face with our #nativeSBA training team, experts in business development in Indian Country and in supporting Native business owners
  • Refine your business ideas and plans, by working with a proven curriculum and gaining insight through feedback from your trainers and classmates
  • Connect to technical assistance after the workshop, to find business development resources in your region and move your business forward
  • Join the nationwide #nativeSBA virtual community on social media

Our Empowerment Workshops help Native business owners and entrepreneurs grow and become successful. We invite you to join us at an Empowerment Workshop this year. Find your location below.
