The American Indian Policy Institute in collaboration with the Edson Entrepreneurship + Innovation Institute developed an intertribal initiative called Inno-NATIONS that championed indigenous entrepreneurship and economic development nationwide. It supported up-and-coming Native American businesses to boost tribal economies by rejuvenating and modernizing traditional trade networks.

Native people have always been entrepreneurs; Inno-NATIONS provides the way to grow more formalized tribal businesses through dynamic and contemporary means.
