LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Nevada Small Business Development Center announced the launch of the Nevada Entrepreneur Network — a free mobile app and website that connects entrepreneurs with resources needed to grow and succeed with support from applicable government, nonprofit and private organizations.

The new mobile app and website powered by Startup Space, a leading platform for entrepreneurial communities, supports the organization’s mission to promote and facilitate sustainable economic prosperity across Nevada through business and community development.

The app is intended to serve as a 24/7 tool to guide entrepreneurs to seek out fundraising opportunities; share resources that help start up, scale, operate and protect their businesses; and create a networking space to connect with other business owners.

It compiles the state’s business development resources and simplifies the process of getting connected with the wide variety of resources for business development, networking, scaling and collaboration, by streamlining information in an easy-to-use application.

Nevada Entrepreneur Network is made for businesses in different stages — from business setup and scaling, to promotion, web development and public relations, there are countless resources for business owners to access.

A virtual event will be held on Jan. 27 to learn how to best use the app and hear from expert panelists on the current business climate.

Event segments include:

- The Nevada Entrepreneur Network Orientationat 11 a.m. to learn how to effectively use the Nevada Entrepreneurial Network hub on Startup Space

- Start, Recover, and Grow: How to Stay Stong and Navigate the Current Climate at 3:30 p.m. with expert panelists, Jeff Saling (StartUp NV), Rod Jorgensen (Nevada SBDC), and David Ponraj (StartUp Space)

- The State of Entrepreneurship in Nevada at 5 p.m. with an esteemed panel to discuss building a robust, battle born community that supports home-grown entrepreneurs.

Funding for the new app was awarded from Google’s Impact Challenge, where the Nevada Small Business Development Center received $175,000 after a panel of Google-selected, Nevada-based judges reviewed applications from nonprofits across the state.

The Nevada Entrepreneur Network is available via the Startup Space app on iOS and Android.
