HELP US PROVIDE ACCESS TO ONE ON ONE BUSINESS CONSULTING, TECHNICAL SUPPORT, AND NAVIGATION FOR NORTH MINNEAPOLIS ENTREPRENEURS

We worked with Felicia Robertson to provide one-on-one business consulting, technical support and navigation. Here's what she had to say: "I have a family-oriented catering company, offering seafood, soul food and some international cuisine and cater lunches, dinners, weddings and other events. I was in the beginning stages when I came to NEON.
I had an assumed name and a food manager certification.

Since working with NEON, I’ve met more people, started providing pre-order dinners on weekends, and have had a lot of open doors. Now I’m actually getting business, every weekend. I have learned preparation techniques and decision-making skills. It’s complicated when you’re out here and there is no one to guide the next step. NEON made me believe it (starting a business) could happen, that was the game changer. I now aspire to grow my company and leave it behind for my children - and one day have a cooking show".

Felicia Robertson is just one of the many stories we tell at NEON. Your giving provides businesses like Naailah's Catering with opportunities to grow and sustain the communities in North Minneapolis and beyond. Thank you for your support - a little goes a long way!
