  • Bristol Bay’s Path to Prosperity

Bristol Bay Development Fund is rolling out a new program called Path to Prosperity — a business education boot camp and business plan competition with awards for three winning business plans.

The top two winning plans will receive up to $20,000 and the third winning plan will receive up to $10,000. The grant awards can be used to support the small business ideas with technical assistance, marketing or other capacity-building activities identified in the plan.

The program is open to individuals, for-profit businesses, and tribal entities that have or intend to have a significant operating presence in the Bristol Bay region. The business idea may be an original business concept or an extension of a current business activity (i.e., adding a new product or service). It can be a product, service or social venture.
