Industry-Driven Support Model

Alaska

The Industry-Driven Support Model is being developed and tested as a resource for low income entrepreneurs with disabilities. The model is focused on bringing entrepreneurs from all parts of Alaska with various disabilities together through one common theme, owning a small business within a similar industry. The training sessions focus on a specific topic (e.g., Finances or Marketing) for a specific industry (e.g., arts and crafts or service businesses). The networking sessions focus on discussions around the training topics and how to network within and outside of one’s own community
