American Indian Business Leaders

AIBL logo

AIBL was organized in January 1994 and was recognized as a 501(c)(3) in 1995 on the University of Montana’s campus in Missoula as a result of founder, and first Executive Director, Michelle Henderson’s (Assiniboine) master thesis. The original idea evolved from concern expressed by many tribal leaders that recognized a critical need for educated, experienced members to assist with tribal economic development efforts.

The mission of AIBL is to increase the representation of American Indians and Alaska Natives in business and entrepreneurial ventures through education and leadership development opportunities.

AIBL’s vision over the next decade is to become the pre-eminent national non-profit organization serving American Indians and Alaska Natives by providing business and entrepreneurship education, leadership development training, and the necessary support to help young men and women who aspire to pursue studies and careers in business, entrepreneurship, or related disciplines.
