Business Assistance

Our three business assistance program areas - the award-winning P2P Business Development Competition, One-on-One Business Coaching, and Skill Building Workshops - provide individuals and businesses access to the tools, resources and skills they need to grow.


P2p Business development competition

Spruce Root's Path to Prosperity (P2P) Program is focused on building the capacity of Southeast Alaska's businesses and business owners. 

Do you live in Southeast Alaska? Do you have an idea for a business you would like to start? Do you own an existing business that would like to grow? If so, the Path to Prosperity Business Development Competition might be a fit for you. The competition is a partnership between Spruce Root and The Nature Conservancy that targets Southeast Alaska residents with ideas for triple-bottom-line oriented businesses; those that will have a positive economic, social, and environmental impact on their communities.
