Social Venture Circle hosts this interactive webinar led by Nikki Love (NDN Collective) and Chrystel Cornelius (First Nations Oweesta Corporation) on how to bring Native communities out of relief and into recovery.
First Nations Oweesta Corporation and NDN Collective, the only national Native-led financial intermediaries in Indian Country, will share updated industry data on how the pandemic is affecting Native businesses and the institutions serving them, as well as their joint effort to support Native CDFIs who are the frontline defenders and anchors for capital and development in tribal economies. These partners will further share what the future of investment can look like to bring Native communities out of relief and into recovery.
