GROW Nebraska™ is a non-profit organization. Our focus is developing a stronger landscape for entrepreneurship in Nebraska. GROW Nebraska™ started with 81 members and now has more than 400 members situated throughout the state.
GROW Nebraska™ members provide approximately 1,600 full-time jobs and 1,400 part-time jobs in Nebraska. Our member survey indicated 35% of respondents increased staff hours or added staff last year
GROW Nebraska™ believes there is nothing more important in sustaining a business than marketing. Currently we are the only non-profit market access program in the state. We work closely with our members on an individual basis to find out what each member needs to take their business to the next level and connect to the global market place.
GROW Nebraska™ is an Entrepreneurial Service Organization, which is membership-based and driven. GROW provides "entrepreneurial coaching" and market access opportunities to its members. Entrepreneurial coaching includes initial consultations, counseling, product evaluation and market access assistance. GROW Nebraska’s™ goal is to connect entrepreneurs and small businesses to the world marketplace.
One aspect that makes GROW Nebraska™ truly unique is that we allow members to choose from our many services. They may choose to participate in everything or just pay for and become involved in the select few that works best for them. Instead of forcing one "cookie-cutter" option, GROW encourages our members to develop a plan that will benefit their business the most.
GROW Nebraska’s™ Mission is to create sustainable economic development through business training, technical assistance, promotion, and access to markets. Therefore, we work closely with our members to help them in all aspects of marketing. We offer individual training on product evaluation, accessing wholesale markets, incorporating social media, and selling products through online stores such as eBay, Amazon, and our BuyNebraska.com site.
GROW Nebraska’s™ vision is to create awareness of Nebraska businesses and services through the “Buy It Local Nebraska” campaign, in turn, increasing additional revenue, jobs and Generating Real Opportunities for Wealth.
