GROW Nebraska™ is a non-profit organization, whose mission is focused on creating sustainable economic development. We do this by supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses through promotion, access to markets and education.

GROW Nebraska™ is the only program that is providing market entry and market access in the state. Since the start of the Nebraska Microenterprise Development Act, GROW Nebraska has helped create and retain over 2,200 jobs. Currently GROW Nebraska™ has over 300 members and offers 20 business building services. It is our goal to bring Nebraska products and services to the global marketplace, and we have been successfully accomplishing that throughout our history. GROW has received numerous awards and achieved many accomplishments. The Annual Report outlines these successes.

The success of GROW can be attributed to its dedicated staff and statewide board and from the generous funds of our partners and donors. If you are interested in joining our team through volunteering, interning, or financially contributing, please contact

We believe in the talents and skills of the entrepreneurs and small businesses in Nebraska. We continuously promote ethical shopping and encourage you to buy Nebraska products. We also encourage green practices and have many natural products.

Making Entrepreneurial Dreams Come True through Promotion, Education, and Market Access

MarkeTECH SponsorsAt GROW Nebraska, we believe small businesses and entrepreneurs are the backbone of the community. By giving these innovators the tools they need to turn their dreams into reality, we build lives, relationships, and local economies. There's a ripple effect, bridging generations, that leads to impassioned growth for all of us who dare to pursue our passions.

Conferences, One-on-One Assistance, and Monthly Free Trainings

MarkeTECH SponsorsEvery month, GROW Nebraska offers a free training on a topic of interest for entrepreneurs. Whether they're seeking to draw more tourists to their retail store or revamp their website, we provide opportunities for them to learn. Other workshops with more focused and dedicated assistance are also offered across the state, with our largest being our annual MarkeTECH conference that highlights the latest ways to integrate marketing and technology into business strategy. GROW members also have access to one-on-one assistance.

Scholarships and More!
MarkeTECH SponsorsIf a business owner has passion and know-how, we want to see them succeed. Because of this, GROW Nebraska offers scholarships to business owners in need, to help them get the resources necessary to grow into a self-sustaining business. We also partner with other organizations to provide them with additional funding opportunities.
