TULSA, Okla. (PRWEB) August 22, 2014

Cherokee Nation Technology Solutions (CNTS), a division of Cherokee Nation Businesses, is partnering with the U.S. Small Business Administration to host free, onsite training sessions and web-based seminars for native corporations interested in joining the 8(a) program. The workshops provide valuable insight for tribally owned businesses and Alaska Native Corporations (ANCs).

Were pleased to partner with the Small Business Administration because it will provide more resources to the American Indian business community, said Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker. At Cherokee Nation Businesses we are committed to creating jobs and building a strong economy. This will allow us to play a vital role as mentors and educators across Indian Country as we continue to nurture and grow tribally owned businesses.

Working with the SBAs Office of Native American Affairs, CNTS created curriculum focused on business development and the unique rules and considerations of the 8(a) program. The sessions address the many challenges faced by native businesses and offer operational and leadership strategies to build capacity, foster growth and expansion, and ensure sustainability. CNTS also provides technical assistance to participating organizations.

Our diversified businesses have experienced tremendous growth and success over the past few years, said Steven Bilby, president of CNBs diversified businesses. We are honored to have the opportunity to work with the SBA to share our knowledge and passion, so that all native companies have the support they need to achieve success in their marketplace.

Registration is currently available for classes in September.
