Northside Economic Opportunity Network (NEON) has been building wealth for low- to moderate-income entrepreneurs since 2006. By building and supporting a diverse, multi-cultural community of entrepreneurs, our approach to business development seeks to bring Northside-grown wealth and vibrancy home to the North Minneapolis.
The current pandemic has accelerated sustained demand for our services as BIPOC entrepreneurs and business owners navigate new and evolving challenges to their viability. NEON is poised for transformative growth to meet this rise in demand and deliver a full range of expertise, business advisement, and wrap-around services to our community of entrepreneurs for years to come. NEON's Grow + Thrive Northside Campaign seeks $5 million in philanthropic investment to grow our organizational capacity.
