Northwest Native APEX Accelerator Program

The Northwest Native APEX Accelerator provides no-cost technical assistance to American Indian/Alaskan Native, Native-Hawaiian owned businesses, Tribes, and Tribal Enterprises who wish to participate in the government marketplace, including Federal, state, and local agencies.

Our no-cost services include confidential one-on-one counseling and technical assistance training, such as in-person and virtual workshops, webinars, and provide resources to support these government procurement endeavors. These resources include assistance in navigating registrations (,, obtaining certifications (federal and state certifications), pre-award support (finding opportunities, solicitation review, marketing), post-award assistance (conflicts, debriefs), bid-matching service, and outreach events with government agencies.

We are committed to assisting all Native American Indians in achieving self-sufficiency by facilitating the development and expansion of the Native American private sector, making a positive impact on reservation communities, and establishing business relationships with private industries, federal, state, local, and tribal government procurement offices. Our aim is to empower and uplift Native communities by fostering growth and partnerships in the business world.

APEX Accelerators are funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the Department of Defense and administered through the Oregon Native American Chamber, covering Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.
