Ready to start or expand your business? Our Set Up Shop training program provides the tools you need to grow, and ongoing resources to help your continued success.

Set Up Shop spring graduates.

We offer comprehensive, personalized training for new or growing entrepreneurs. Our training is provided in cohorts of 10-15 people over the course of 6 weeks. Each week features a different topic, including business strategy, operations, marketing, financials, and more, all taught through classes and workshops by our experienced staff and industry professionals.

Course content and pace are customized to each group's needs. We've graduated 15 cohorts since the program began in 2018, led by ACLT staff and partners including The Business Boutique, Alaska Literacy Program, the Polynesian Association of Alaska (PAOA), and Alaska Growth Capital.
