A Message From Our CEO

janell_pic_title.jpgIt gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the GROW Nebraska website. These are exciting yet challenging times for GROW Nebraska and I hope our portal creates an opportunity for our valued visitors around the world to learn more about our leading-edge market access service, training service, marketing strategies, services, sustainability initiatives, and values. This website is part of our commitment to transparency and open communications to all our stakeholders in building a stronger entrepreneurial ecosystem in Nebraska. 

Since GROW Nebraska’s inception in 1998, GROW Nebraska has played a pioneering role in the development of a nonprofit focusing marketing and training.  The program also continues to gain ground on self-sustainability.  GROW Nebraska works tirelessly to connect our small business members with their passions to creating high growth Nebraska companies. 

The GROW Nebraska brand symbolizes progress, leading the way in innovation on both the digital front and social media.  GROW Nebraska has over 10,000 social media fans across all major channels and over the past three years, GROW Nebraska Twitter account exceeds 57,000 impressions. 

In the face of a history of strong partnerships with other Nebraska organizations like REAP, Nebraska Enterprise, NBDC, Nebraska community colleges and other in small business solutions, GROW Nebraska aims to continue to pave the way to a bright future for Nebraska. 

Furthermore, GROW Nebraska has developed a high-achieving, result-oriented organizational culture that puts our business members at the center of everything it does, and seeks to create economic and social value wherever it operates.

GROW Nebraska is a success story that would not be possible without the contribution of our members and dedicated staff who have shared our incredible journey thus far. We look forward to continuing to serve and engage with them as well as other stakeholders in the future. We appreciate the ongoing support received from those who are interested in GROW Nebraska activities and pledge to continue in our efforts to exceed expectations.

I look forward to detailing all these and other developments at the appropriate time, and our website will remain the ideal source of updated information. Thank you for taking the time to visit the GROW Nebraska website and I wholeheartedly welcome any constructive feedback you may have.
