The Ta-Qwo-Ma Business Center is dedicated to helping tribal and community members to open their own businesses and to helping existing businesses owned by tribal and community members to grow. Since opening its office in 2009, the Center has created strong partnerships with related organizations including:
- Enterprise for Equity, a micro-enterprise assistance program in Thurston County.
- ONABEN, an organization in Portland, Oregon dedicated to assisting tribal entrepreneurs.
- Oweetsa, an organization that has helped tribes create loan funds.
The Center offers financial literacy and businesses classes, one-on-one assistance in writing business plans and obtaining financing, and many other entrepreneurial support services.
