On the 9th episode of the Native Business Podcast, guest host Mika Leonard (Miami Tribe) is joined by panelists including Chairman John Shotton of the Otoe-Missouria Tribe, Maranda Compton, an Indian law expert from the Van Ness Feldman law firm and Bill McClure, CEO of Native American Coffee, who discuss how the internet and e-commerce are leveling the playing field in Indian Country.
Listen in to learn how e-commerce opportunities provide access to new markets, consumers and provide competitive advantages. Especially those Tribes and entrepreneurs who are based in rural areas and are challenged by lack of proximity to larger marketplaces. Understanding how online e-commerce advantages operate within other economic systems, cultures and strategies are keys to moving from brick and mortar revenue-based efforts to truly developing tangible online e-commerce economic opportunities. Join us on this podcast for insights on how entrepreneurs can grow their businesses online and how Tribal nations are able to exercise their sovereignty and utilize their competitive advantages to grow financial resources for their communities.
