The Chickasaw Nation employs thousands of people in its many tribal facilities and diverse businesses. From life skills training to career counseling and transportation programs, the Nation supports its citizens in reaching their full potential.
The Chickasaw Business Network exists to help both established and emerging entrepreneurs who are Chickasaw citizens develop business acumen and leverage the support of the community. "Sometimes clients know they want to start a business, but they don't really know what resources are available," says Chickasaw Business Network Manager Randa Covington, so the organization hosts workshops and events to provide crucial training and networking opportunities. The Small Business Development Center offers help with drawing up business plans for budding entrepreneurs, while the Chickasaw Business Directory is an online portal allowing Chickasaw citizens to find and conduct business with each other.
