Omaha, Nebraska – The nine partner organizations of the Entrepreneur's Education Collaborative (EEC) have continued to provide valuable information throughout the COVID-19 pandemic by delivering virtual sessions on funding resources, services and programs available to aspiring and existing entrepreneurs throughout Nebraska.
The EEC is a four-year-old cooperative alliance of the Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC), the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce’s Reach Initiative, the Better Business Bureau, the Business Ethics Alliance, the Omaha Public Power District (OPPD), Catholic Charities, Nebraska Enterprise Fund and SCORE Mentors of Omaha. Some member organizations have changed through the years, but the core groups have remained.
