Small Business Incubator & Social Enterprise
With a mission to support Indigenous economic self-sufficiency, Mādahòkì Farm provides selected participants in the very early stages of their business access to mentorship, product and/or materials grown on the farm, seed money, space, support, and opportunities to sell their products on-site to help get them established.
Participants work alongside specialized sector mentors at the farm to develop products and services. They can harvest, forage, or produce items on the farm and then use the business incubator to leverage their business out of the “start-up” phase and work through their operational model, business planning, sales, marketing, and growth strategies.
In addition to mentorship and investment opportunities (in the form of seed money), the Madahoki Farm business incubator gives these entrepreneurs access to logistical and technical resources as well as shared space to produce and prepare their products, and space in the year-round Madahoki Marketplace and presence at seasonal events and festivals to sell their goods.
