Change Labs fosters the growth of Native American small businesses across the Southwest.
Our programs are designed to create a safe place for entrepreneurs and and community members to explore and develop their ideas for change. We provide the infrastructure, expertise, and support structures for the first three years of the entrepreneurial journey. Our programs includes:
Providing modern shared workspace to home-based businesses across the Navajo and Hopi Reservations.
Providing business incubation to high-potential Native entrepreneurs with viable business ideas.
Running an artist residency program for Native visual artists who have the potential to support and enable local businesses.
To collect data and conduct research that creates a baseline for the ease of doing business on the Navajo Nation.
Our flagship studio is in Tuba City, AZ and is open to the public on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10am to 6pm and Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10am to 3pm. Our Business Coaches are in the Studio every Monday for one-on-one time to answer any questions you have about starting a business.
