The Incubator Project
A commitment to our community
Food entrepreneurship is a pathway out of poverty that creates careers and future wealth. With no shared commercial kitchens available in North Minneapolis, food entrepreneurs are displaced and find difficulty operating successful business ventures.
With the expansion of the Northside Food Business Incubator, we will provide reliable and affordable resource for entrepreneurs to start, thrive and grow their businesses.
We're passionately working to build wealth for low-to-moderate income entrepreneurs in North Minneapolis. 40% of NEON's clients are in the food industry, and to support those clients, NEON is building Minnesota’s leading food industry specific incubator. Promoting food industry innovation, the incubator will provide resources and support to help these businesses grow and succeed.
A Commitment To Our Community
As a company that prides itself on being at the forefront of innovation, NEON recognizes the significant impact that the incubator will have on the community beyond the financial benefits it brings. We understand that starting a business is not only a daunting task, but it can also be an emotional and psychological rollercoaster ride, filled with uncertainties, anxieties, and fears. Therefore, we are committed to ensuring that our incubator provides a supportive and nurturing environment that fosters creativity, collaboration, and growth.
The NEON incubator is more than just a space for entrepreneurs to work on their business ideas. It is a place where the community can connect with other like-minded individuals, collaborate on projects, and access the resources they need to bring their ideas to life. By providing a high-level production facility, we are ensuring that entrepreneurs have access to the latest technologies and equipment, enabling them to produce high-quality products and services.
