NACET’s Vision for the Future
NACET has four strategic initiatives:
- To nurture startup and growth-stage companies with coaching, mentoring, training, and access to resources to encourage growth, stabilization, employment and community foundations.
- To promote entrepreneurship as a career path to NAU students and young people throughout the community so we can retain our best and brightest to take root in our community and create their own opportunities.
- To support Native American entrepreneurs through the Native American Incubator Network program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and hosted in its first phase by the Navajo Nation and the White Mountain Apache.
- To foster a culture of entrepreneurship in Northern Arizona.
