Business Incubator Programs

Our Business Incubator programs prepare entrepreneurs for scalable business ownership as we provide one-on-one coaching, training, expertise, networking and technical assistance after the initial phase of idea assessment is complete. 

NEON Food is the only industry-specific incubator designed specifically for food businesses in Minnesota. You’ll work one-on-one with a business advisor who will help you navigate the City’s food regulations and grow your food business intentionally by slowly scaling up. Through marketplace opportunities you’ll be able to test your products and build a customer base, giving you the necessary experience to run a successful food business. 

We work with all food businesses operating in a variety of ways. These include: Cottage Food Certification, Farmers Markets/Food Events, Pop Ups, Food Trucks, CPG (Certified Packaged Good), Catering/Personal Chef, and Brick and Mortar Restaurants.

 

Experts work with participants to provide: 

  • One-on-one coaching 

  • Business assessments 

  • Product/menu pricing 

  • Marketplace opportunities 

  • Licensing consultation
