Native American Chamber of Commerce of Illinois

We provide opportunities for networking and support of American Indian businesspeople in Illinois – a mentor’s environment for those individuals beginning new endeavors and education and growth opportunities specific to Native Americans.


NACC-IL‘s work is guided by the belief that Native businesses are a foundation for emerging Native economies that will provide employment and educational opportunities and allow our Native communities the opportunity to break the generational cycles of poverty. Today we carry that belief forward and continue to work toward a brighter future with a thriving and connected Native American community that empowers its business leaders with resources, partnerships and services that ensure their success and supports the aspirations of community members.

We mentor our members through the start-up of new businesses and at every stage of development. We provide one-on-one management counseling and host regular business development events throughout the state. Our members enjoy access to a wide range of resources, that include financial products/services, networking opportunities with community leaders and fund-raising events to support special initiatives.

NACC-IL facilitates economic development seminars throughout the state in order to reach potential entrepreneurs in all communities of Illinois Indian Country. These seminars are designed to provide insights, best practices, direction and support for company growth, such as Access to Capital, Government Contracts, Strategy and Planning, Sales and Marketing, Finance/ Accounting, Human Resources, Technology, Fixed Assets, Ethics, Operations, Supply Chain, Customer Services, R & D, Organizational Culture and Legal.
