The SourceLink® Resource Navigator
The University of Nebraska SourceLink® Resource Navigator links entrepreneurs and community leaders to solutions and opportunities by curating university resources in one online platform.
Purpose of the Resource Navigator
Together, the University of Nebraska and the state of Nebraska provide a wealth of programs and organizations to support and empower economic, workforce and community growth, but many are unknown to those who need them. Through this efficient, user-friendly catalog, Nebraska’s leaders and business owners can quickly access the resources and experts they need when they need them.
University of Nebraska Extension, the Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) and Rural Prosperity Nebraska (RPN) are piloting the SourceLink® Resource Navigator throughout 2021. Similar to NetWork Kansas, the platform will increase efficiency and allow for broader statewide strategies to develop entrepreneurial communities and economic impact.

This prototype was developed based on preliminary conversations with industry leaders from across Nebraska as well as best practice conversations with other states throughout the past two years. The project team determined that the SourceLink® Resource Navigator provides a worthwhile tangible strategy to create, implement and sustain a statewide system for ready and easy access to business and community development resources.
