NEIC has been fortunate to receive investment from committed community members around the State of Minnesota.  Our success and ability to change our community would not be possible without them.  


See what our members are saying about NEIC.

We joined NEIC because strong communities have strong local investors that build up the community. Our dream is to be part of a movement to take back our main streets from outside forces and companies.
— Justin & Brenda Dittrich
When I found out my neighborhood was coming together to take change into their own hands and not just wait for someone else to do it, I wanted to do my part. My first worry was, “Can I afford this?” Then I realized that if I truly believed in our community how could I afford not to.
— Brian Linder
Joining NEIC seemed like a no brainier. Central Avenue needed more development and NEIC gave neighbors and business owners a chance to minimize their individual risk while at the same getting buy in and support from the community.

My family moved to NE around the time that the NEIC was forming. We were excited to join because the NEIC represents the kind of community we want to be part of. Watching the change happen at Central and Lowry has been very rewarding. For most of us investing means mutual funds or a 401k. We hope those funds grow, but are only vaguely aware of how that money is being used. With the NEIC we see our investment everyday. The return is not only to our personal financial benefit but to the social and economic benefit of the whole community.
— Seth Erling
I joined NEIC because I wanted to be a part of a movement with our community. Within the time has NEIC has started, there has been a notable increase in foot traffic and an increased feeling of the community supporting Central Avenue.
