Entrepreneurs are developing groundbreaking technologies that represent the future of our economy, and as a result entrepreneur assistance programs are beginning to multiply. More and more funding is being put forth to support the entrepreneurial spirit in The Plus.
As more and more business leaders from across the region continue to invest in NEO’s entrepreneurial spirit, it’s important to continue to enhance our reputation as an entrepreneurial hotspot. One way organizations throughout The Plus are striving to meet this demand is through the development of programs geared toward women and minority entrepreneurs.
