From lists of active grants and loans to reopening guidelines, our COVID-19 page is continuously updated with information on what resources are available to entrepreneurs we work with every day.

NEON has compiled information on how to receive assistance if your business was impacted by the recent uprising, as well as ways you can help with the rebuilding efforts. Many of the resources listed are specifically for Northside businesses.

In a time where the majority of activity has been moved to virtual spaces, the Northside Economic Opportunity Network (NEON) and the West Broadway Business and Area Coalition (WBC) is excited to present Black Friday on Broadway (BFOB) as we approach the holiday season. 

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. 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!


In light of the pandemic, luncheons are currently being held virtually. Register via Eventbrite before each luncheon to receive the Zoom link.  


The panel discussion will be published by the end of the month on the "Northside Business Lucheon" page.

October's Luncheon:

Wealth Building and Business Succession Planning

This month's topic is on "Wealth Building and Business Succession Planning." Panelists will discuss the different ways to build generational wealth through small business ownership and the importance of business succession planning to keep this wealth in the community. 

RSVP via Eventbrite to watch live Thursday, October 15th from 12 - 1pm.
