Northside Economic Opportunity Network

About NEON

Northside Economic Opportunity Network (NEON) began working to advance the efforts of underserved entrepreneurs in the community a decade ago. Launched in 2006 with grant from NorthWay Community Trust, NEON used its talents and offerings to build and support Northside businesses owned by lower-income Northside residents.

NEON was one of six organizations working collaboratively to provide entrepreneur training. Early goals were quickly met as the collaborative tripled the volume of training and business lending activities in the area in less than three years. The collaborative remained intact until 2009 and some of the early collaborators still play key roles with NEON as "Network Partners" today.‚Äč

OUR MISSION: NEON's mission is to build wealth for low-to-moderate income entrepreneurs in North Minneapolis and surrounding communities.

OUR VISION: NEON's vision is to transform North Minneapolis and the surrounding area into a prosperous, visible, sustainable, and highly-diverse multi-cultural community of entrepreneurs.
