What is Nevada Entrepreneur Network?
Whether you’ve just started your business, are looking to scale, or have the next great idea, Nevada Entrepreneur Network (NEN) gives you access to a fully-mapped business ecosystem with plenty to discover and learn. Join the Silver State’s first statewide community of entrepreneurs to access continued education, networking opportunities, important developments in the local marketplace, and much more.
What are hubs? And which one should I join?
Nevada is a big state with many economic regions. To make it easier to engage within your local community, we've divided the state into two main hubs: Northern Nevada Entrepreneur Network, and Southern Nevada Entrepreneur Network. Each hub contains information unique to it's respective region, so you can quickly understand what's happening in your area.
We encourage you to join the regional hub you most closely associate with, but you're always welcome to be active in both. NEN is about centralizing our state's business resources, while creating lasting connection points for continued growth and opportunity.
