Indian Entrepreneur Development Program
Welcome to the Indian Entreprenuer Development Program website.
The goal of the Indian Entrepreneur Development Program is to provide technical assistance and business planning to Native American entrepreneurs starting a business as well as growing and professionalizing their business. The program is part of the Small Business Development Center Bureau.
The program is a State of Montana and community partnership that includes local Native American community development organizations, the Native American community colleges and tribal government organizations. The program works frequently with the Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs), local chambers of commerce, and community colleges. The program develops successful business owners by giving them the professional marketing, operational and financial tools they need to maximize their business success.
The program supplements traditional education programs with business counseling and workshops. The Indian Entrepreneur Development Program is focused on developing the capacity of Indian organizations on the Reservations to mentor and support Indian business owners through classroom training, workshops, counseling and lending.
