Our name is inspired by Braiding Sweetgrass, the New York Times Bestseller by Indigenous scientist Robin Wall Kimmerer. After many years working in the Indigenous economy supporting Impact Benefit Agreement negotiations, we decided to alter direction. Now, we share our passion by helping others create agreements and launch businesses that drive the Indigenous economy. With our investment broker and legal partners, and Indigenous technical partners, our ramp up process is designed to empower your negotiation and economic development teams and outfit them with the tools they need to succeed. Talk to us today about how we can support your growth, your agreements, and your businesses while maximizing environmental protection and enhancement!

Our service includes a comprehensive consult to help identify negotiation and business development implementation gaps and opportunities, a comprehensive report that includes a project support plan with timelines and milestones, a cost analysis, and a schedule.

We believe agreement mentors are key—that’s why when it comes to client selection, we’re choosy. We want to give you the time and guidance you deserve. Whether you’re seeking a strategic alliance with the right partner or a special skillset or tool, call us today. Together we’ll create and refine your plan for pre and post IBA success!
