SourceLink Nebraska is live!

In 2018, the Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC)Nebraska Extension, and Rural Prosperity Nebraska (RPN) collaborated to bring SourceLink® framework to Nebraska.

Launched in November:   SourceLink Nebraska connects those seeking business assistance with the nonprofit, educational, or government resource organizations that can best help them. 

SourceLink Nebraska supports Nebraska business development and entrepreneurship by:

  • collaborating with business-driven economic development efforts.
  • delivering interconnectivity with an array of resource partners.
  • virtual one-to-one support system directly to entrepreneurs and business owners.
  • identifying gaps in the ecosystem, which will be very beneficial for pinpointing services for underserved communities.


SourceLink Nebraska assists economic and community development by:

  • increasing efficiency and allowing for broader statewide strategies for entrepreneurial growth and economic impact.
  • ensuring that resources are transparent and available to all local economic and community developers, entrepreneurs, and business owners across Nebraska by allowing for access to information at any time regardless of their distance from a resource.
  • incorporating a means of tracking effectiveness and mapping the Nebraska ecosystem to evaluate opportunities for strategic program development.
  • enabling tracking inquiries and resource performance, which assists with identifying pockets of inactivity or other issues.
