Northeast Nebraska, Circa 2030
Norfolk’s downtown is a vibrant hub of businesses, restaurants, theaters, galleries and residences filled with young entrepreneurs – who stayed here because of scholarships and training programs that leveraged their work ethic into well-paying careers.
In 2018, the Aksarben Foundation challenged its members to address Nebraska’s workforce crisis. From this, the Northeast Nebraska Growing Together initiative was created in order to foster a regional entrepreneurial ecosystem. Go to the Norfolk Area Economic Development Council and see where it all begins.
Northeast Nebraska Growing Together is an Aksarben workforce initiative.
