The Alliance for Artisan Enterprise, founded in November 2012 and hosted by the Aspen Institute, is a collaborative effort of over 70 artisan businesses, artisan support organizations, corporations, government agencies, and other partners who are working together to promote the full potential of the global artisan sector.  

The Alliance for Artisan Enterprise was created to elevate the importance of the artisan sector, support and grow artisan businesses, and share best practices in a collaborative learning community.

Artisan Business Coaching

artisan business coaching

Artisan entrepreneurs around the world struggle to sustain themselves as small businesses and provide steady income to artisan producers. Many artisan businesses participate in the informal economy and have no access to formal business training. In collaboration with key partners, the Alliance for Artisan Enterprise develops tailored, collaborative resources to support artisan businesses. Resources include the Artisan Innovation Workshop assessment tool, along with a Digital Learning Series produced for the Alliance for Artisan Enterprise member network.

In late 2017, the Alliance for Artisan Enterprise will launch a formal Artisan Business Coaching program, including tailored business training modules on record keeping, business planning, and more! Additional details will be announced in the coming months.
