ANHC Launches Free Program for Entrepreneurs & Creators

CO.STARTERS Core is a 10-week program for entrepreneurs and creators presented by the Alaska Native Heritage Center & Leadership Anchorage.

Are you an entrepreneur? A small business owner? An artist? A creator? If you have an idea that is ready to be explored, or if you have already started your business and you’re searching for clarity in marketing and a fuller understanding of running a successful venture, CO.STARTERS is for YOU. The one essential element is that you have a concept that you are ready and willing to share and grow in a collaborative environment.

We are excited to announce CO.STARTERS will launch in Anchorage this spring. We seek to elevate place-based entrepreneurial opportunities in the creative economy and beyond. This program brings together 10 individuals or businesses who want to scale up on community impact, entrepreneurial success, and creative agency. Through an intensive series of 10 sessions, a cohort of future community leaders will fine-tune their ideas, critically examining every part and determining their next steps through real-time feedback from people in the community.

Program requirements

Participation in all 10 weekly sessions each Wednesday 6pm-9pm from April 14th to June 16th 2021 led by a CO.STARTERS-trained facilitator
