We're Growing

Sharing our impact

Last year we created unique growth opportunities for business owners through our programs, marketplace opportunities and social enterprise divisions.

 

We nearly doubled our operating budget through increased grant funding, partnerships and 21st century co-working space.

 

We are driven by the impact we make as entrepreneurs start, grow and thrive in Minneapolis and the surrounding communities we serve.

NEON is a great 

resource for me 

as a first-time 

business owner.
