a statewide small business assistance initiative

no-cost Support to help you grow your business!

We’ve joined forces with Arizona community-led organizations serving all 15 counties across the state to launch the AZNavigator.

The AZNavigator is a team of 10 organizations, led by Local First Arizona, working together across Arizona to improve quality and access to small business support services. From startups to established businesses, the network of experts can help stabilize, reinvent, or scale your company.

Through this program, small businesses can access no-cost training and coaching on a variety of topics, depending on their business needs.
