This five-day course for aspiring “green” entrepreneurs from tribes throughout the country is based on the Indianpreneurship curriculum developed by ONABEN. It is designed to offer students the basic knowledge they need to tackle the challenges of starting a business, especially on reservations.

All students should leave the training with products including outlines for a business plan, start-up budget, and operating budget. These items are important in attracting any kind of investment in a new enterprise, and are required to apply for Trees, Water & People’s Tribal Renewable Energy Program’s Green Business Start-up Award.
