Conference Objectives

Indigenous communities are under increasing pressure to develop long-term sustainable economic development strategies.

The FIBEA Manaus 2008 theme, Fostering Indigenous Business and Entrepreneurship in the Americas Conference, is timely given the importance and variety of business issues that need to be addressed for the development and fostering of business alliances, trade, and investment amongst Indigenous business in North, Central, and South American countries.

To this end, the conference will give participants the chance to network, share ideas, and explore business opportunities. In addition, the conference will also discuss Indigenous issues, trends, and directions. The conference will explore the diverse environment of Indigenous business and entrepreneurship, covering a variety of topics which affect and permeate Indigenous business of all sizes and structures.

Through this conference, we hope to enable Indigenous business people in the private, public, and tribal/community sectors to present Indigenous business opportunities, solutions, and problems to an Indigenous audience. We also want to promote networking among Indigenous business people and communities toward problem-solving and business opportunities.
