Small Business Support

Welcome to our Small Business Support hub, brought to you by Plenty Doors Community Development Corporation. Explore a wealth of resources tailored for business development, including information on the Business Incubator Program, Native Business Support, and the Apsáalooke Community Market. Empower your small business journey with the support and expertise provided by Plenty Doors, fostering sustainable growth and success. 

In 2021, Plenty Doors conducted a “leakage analysis” of the Crow Reservation economy.  A leakage study analyzes dollar leakages (that is, where residents are spending money outside the local economy) and opportunities for plugging leaks.  By studying leaks of dollars – that is, goods and services being imported that could be produced locally – a community can identify the most promising markets for new or expanded local businesses.   The leakage analysis is complete and determined that the Crow Reservation has a highly undiversified economy with massive leakage. For every dollar that comes into the Reservation, an estimated 85 cents leaves immediately through non-local expenditures.  The analysis also showed the community desperately lacks buildings and space to house businesses.

The mission of the project is to develop the Crow community’s ability to launch and nurture businesses run by tribal members. By expanding the number, size, and reach of Indigenous businesses, Plenty Doors seeks to strengthen the regional economy and improve the quality of life for the Apsáalooke.

Business Incubator Program

What is a Business Incubator? ​ A business incubator is a workspace created to offer startups and new businesses access to the resources they need, all under one roof.  In addition to a desk or office, incubators often provide resident companies with access to expert advisors, mentors, administrative support, office equipment, training, and/or potential investors. ​ Most incubators are created as temporary launching pads for new businesses, with the expectation that participants will eventually graduate and move out. Plenty Doors has implemented a program for local Native-owned businesses operating on or near the Crow Reservation
