Set Up Shop is ACLT’s flagship program to support neighborhood entrepreneurs.

Through Set Up Shop, we work with entrepreneurs from low-income and minority communities to open the business of their dreams in their home community. We are proud to bring this model to Anchorage with support from the Neighborhood Development Center as members of the Build From Within Alliance.

Set Up Shop provides a pipeline of support for neighborhood entrepreneurs looking to start or grow their businesses in our neighborhoods of focus – Fairview, Spenard, Muldoon and Mountain View.

Entrepreneurs have access to:

“I HAVE BEEN AFFORDED AN ENVIRONMENT AND COMMUNITY OF FELLOW ENTREPRENEURS WHOM I FEEL ARE NOT ONLY INSPIRING, BUT ALSO ENCOURAGING. CLASSES HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY WELCOMING, INFORMATIVE, AND VALUABLE ON MY JOURNEY TO BE A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS OWNER.”
