Capacity Building

Northeastern has launched an exciting new initiative as part of our Institutuional Master Plan. Along with new and renovated building plans, the NU Master Plan includes commitments to increase university investment in small local businesses and Minority (MBE)/Woman (WBE) owned businesses. To this end, NU is working with Next Street, a Boston-based firm that provides urban small businesses and non-profit business advice and access to captial. Together, NU and Next Street will be delivering a series of workshops to local and minority/woman-owned businesses to ensure they have the skills and tools needed to grow their business and work successfully with Northeastern.
