NEON Contributors/Funders

Thank You to our Funders and Contributors:

NEON will not be able to do our work, if not for the support of our Community, Funders, Donors, and Key Partners. We want to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of them. We look forward to continuing our partnership, leveraging economic development opportunities for small businesses to start, grow and thrive in north Minneapolis.
