Join the SourceLink Nebraska Network

SourceLink Nebraska logo

Nebraska is home to a wealth of programs and organizations that support entrepreneurship and small business owners but sometimes these resources are not well known to those who are seeking assistance. Our mission with SourceLink Nebraska is to build an online network that quickly connects those who are seeking business assistance with the organizations that can best help them.

For your organization to be included in this exciting effort, please complete the following form to highlight the resources and services that your organization provides to entrepreneurs and business owners. This will ensure that entrepreneurs and business owners who are looking for the services that you provide are quickly and efficiently referred to you for assistance.

SourceLink Nebraska includes nonprofit, educational, or government resource partners.

At times, resource partners include some for-profit organizations such as incubators, accelerators, coworking spaces and equity providers. Inclusion in the network will be at the discretion of SourceLink Nebraska.

The SourceLink Nebraska network does NOT include for-profit resources such as bankers, accountants, lawyers, insurance agents, management consultants. While these resources are an important part of an overall entrepreneurial ecosystem, especially for high-growth companies, this can be difficult to “vet” and are perhaps not in line with the low cost/no cost message.

Becoming a partner is easy:

1. Be an organization that offers programs or resources for entrepreneurs and small businesses
2. Complete the Partner Intake Form below
3. Agree to:

  • Allow SourceLink Nebraska to market your organization and services
  • Be responsive to entrepreneurs referred from SourceLink Nebraska
  • Promote the SourceLink Nebraska community and website, with reciprocal website links, if possible
  • Help SourceLink Nebraska identify ways to track small business success so we can measure and publicize the impact of entrepreneurial support in the community

4. SourceLink Nebraska will work with you to build an accurate profile of your programs for the website

SourceLink Nebraska partnership is limited to organizations that share our mission of strengthening the Nebraska small business and entrepreneurship community. Partner status does not reflect an endorsement by SourceLink Nebraska.
