COVID-19 Business Information

If your business has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have assembled a list of resources for you. From Paycheck Protection Programs to Hennepin County Grants, our COVID-19 page is continuously updated with information on what resources are available to entrepreneurs who we work with every day.

Northside Business Luncheons

Every 3rd Thursday, current and prospective business owners gather at our Northside Business Luncheon to connect and learn business best practices through a different topic each month. (During COVID 19 we are gathering virtually!)

These Luncheons are a collaboration between NEON and the West Broadway Business and Area Coalition (WBC). Follow NEON on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for information on upcoming luncheons, or visit our Luncheon page for recorded sessions!
