The National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (NCAIED) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. With more than 40 years of assisting American Indian Tribes and their enterprises with business and economic development, they have evolved into one of the largest national Indian specific business organizations in the nation.

The 28th Annual National Reservation Economic Summit in Las Vegas, Nev., will feature respected tribal leaders, state and local elected officials and top CEOs, networking, teaming opportunities, business development sessions and American Indian Procurement opportunities. In addition to the SAM signing, SBA will also take part in two workshops during RES on SBA resources and on the Affordable Healthcare Act.

The alliance will strengthen both organizations’ goals to support the creation, development and expansion of small businesses in the American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian communities.
