Tribal Incubator Bill to Foster Entrepreneurship, Close the Employment Gap in Native Communities

 


A new bill to establish and fund business incubators in Indian country was introduced Thursday. The goal is to help start-up and cultivate Native-owned small businesses that will create more jobs and support their surrounding communities.
