Youth explore all aspects of business and entrepreneurship through real-world learning and work experiences from established Indigenous entrepreneurs.

Related Research And Resources

This research enhances efforts in community entrepreneurship education and provides it in-person delivered by local instructors and synchronously online through teleconferencing infrastructure to an expanded set of Arctic communities. Ultimately, participants connect to larger markets through institutional partnerships.

We thank the Arctic Buying Company, Lembas Works, the University of Minnesota Cultural Entrepreneurship program for their support.

Our work was influenced by many other projects and research. Below are some of the related research and projects which we found useful, and hope others will as well.
