About The Choctaw Business Development Center

The CBDC is a full life cycle business development center for small and medium enterprises ranging from start-ups to emerging growth companies. The ultimate goal of the CBDC is to assist Choctaw Nation members to find their best path forward to achieve economic success.

The Choctaw Business Development Center (CBDC) provides a clear path for job creation, economic growth, diversification and sustainability of the Choctaw Nation. The CBDC is developing and supporting a proactive community of entrepreneurs within the Choctaw Nation and helping launch and grow successful start-up ventures in southeast Oklahoma.

The CBDC encourages entrepreneurship, promotes calculated risk-taking and supports the creation of start-up ventures through best practices. The program is open to members of the Choctaw Nation who desire business ownership and wish to support the Nation’s progress and economic sustainability.

The CBDC does this by:

  • Educating and inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders
  • Supporting early stage and growing companies by guiding their growth through our network of mentors and advisors
  • Foster and support the growing community of entrepreneurs and innovators in the Tribe
  • Facilitate, retain and return knowledge back into the Nation
