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. 




Contribute today to artisan businesses worldwide

The artisan sector lacks the investment needed to break down barriers facing artisans around the world. With appropriate support, artisan businesses can better integrate into global commerce, increasing incomes and standards of living for artisan producers and entire communities. Your generous contributions allow the Artisan Alliance to provide critical resources to artisan entrepreneurs around the world, including loan, grant, and technical support.

Donations allow the Artisan Alliance to:

  • Build innovative financing programs for artisan entrepreneurs to grow sustainable businesses
  • Implement Artisan Business Coaching and other technical assistance programs in artisan communities around the world
  • Host or sponsor events to change the conversation about the global artisan sector
  • Provide artisan scholarships for artisan entrepreneurs to explore new market and partnership opportunities

...and more!
