“The National Center is honored to have the support of The UPS Foundation as we further develop the Native Edge portal,” said Chris James, National Center President and CEO. “UPS and The UPS Foundation have been tremendous partners with our organization through the years and have shown incredible corporate leadership. We look forward to continuing this partnership as we work to provide yet another valuable tool to Native American businesses and entrepreneurs.”

- The Native to Native (N2N) Edge community allows businesses and entrepreneurs to network with each other and initiate new relationships.
- The Training Edge, which provides business owners and their employees with interactive tools and training sessions to help in their professional development.
- The Procurement Edge, which is a database for both federal and corporate procurement opportunities, and also allows for Native-owned businesses to partner and team with each other
