Native-led organizations join forces to accelerate entrepreneurship in Indian Country
ImpactAlpha, July 21 – U.S. tribal lands are among the hardest places in the world to do business, with entrepreneurs struggling to access capital, land, infrastructure and reliable Internet connectivity. Four Native-led organizations are launching a joint organization to help businesses in tribal communities secure funding and resources.
“None of our organizations can effectively tackle the systemic challenges alone,” says Dave Castillo of Native Community Capital, itself the product of a 2019 merger of community development financial institutions in Arizona and New Mexico.
