Celebrate AANHPI Heritage Month

AANHPI Heritage Month celebrates the culture, traditions and history of Asian-American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders (AANHPI) in the US. SCORE is dedicated to helping AANHPI entrepreneurs achieve their business goals. Be sure to check out the AANHPI Entrepreneurs Hub for content and webinars created especially for AANHPI business owners.

SCORE has the resources you need to achieve success, like Den Bisema, founder of AnnaCalisa.

Local Spotlight - Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (May 2024)

Did you know that Asian-American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders (AANHPI) own one in 10 American businesses? This month, SCORE celebrates AANHPI entrepreneurs and puts the spotlight on both businesses local to Columbus as well as resources to support Asian entrepreneurs.

How do I learn about and honor Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Month?

Rick Jardiolin @ Explore Columbus wrote a blog post providing historical accounts of both Asians in America and AAPI Heritage Month, information about Columbus’s AAPI community and suggestions on how to celebrate. Note that this post is from 2021 so a few of the suggestions are out-of-date.

How can I support AANHPI businesses in Columbus?

Once again, our friends at Experience Columbus have us covered with a comprehensive list of local Asian-owned businesses.

You’ll find restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, alterations & tailoring services, grocery stores and more. Check out the growing list of local businesses and try something new!

And don’t forget about the yearly festival which features arts, performances, cuisine and goods from various Asian cultures - the Columbus Asian Festival is returning this Memorial Day weekend May 25th and 26th, 2024.

What about resources for AANHPI entrepreneurs?

Our national organization has put together a collection of resources for Asian entrepreneurs. The landing page can be found here and the search page for all AANHPI focused-resources can be found here.

Thank you for reading and for supporting Central Ohio’s Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander community!
