New American Development Center


New American Development Center is an Elevate Hennepin Business Advisor offering up to 25 hours of business planning, and financial management at no cost, including:
• Strategic business planning
• Capital access
• Financial management and accounting


New American Development Center builds a strong and vibrant community through sustainable community and economic development programs by levering resources and addressing cultural needs. NADC provides business development and financial literacy through culturally appropriate mechanisms to serve the East African Immigrant community.

NADC was founded in 2008 to address the challenges facing the growing East African/Somali immigrant population in the Twin Cities region. Given the cultural and religious differences between the mainstream and East African/Somali community, the culturally appropriate wealth-building programs at NADC have filled a critical gap.
