Open for Business Program

Launched in 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Open for Business Program brings together the RCAP network’s expertise in growing opportunity and small businesses in rural and tribal communities for more than 40 years.

Through an online platform, Open for Business provides a one-stop-shop for free on-demand, personalized training and assistance to help rural entrepreneurs launch and grow their business on their own schedule and at their own pace.

Funded by the Wells Fargo Open for Business Fund and Siegel Family Endowment, the initiative promotes collaboration and innovation across RCAP’s network of partners, strengthening our impact and expanding our reach to rural Native, minority and women-owned businesses across all 50 states and U.S. territories.
