Andrew County CommissionersAbout Us

Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation is a nonprofit organization which offers free and confidential business coaching in Northwest Missouri. We are a group of over sixty volunteers from six counties who care passionately about the success and sustainability of our rural Northwest Missouri region. We formed the Facilitation Board in order to assist our rural entrepreneurs in creating or maintaining their small business ventures. We do this for the same reason the early pioneers helped their neighbors by barn raising – we know it will strengthen and sustain our rural communities.

Each member of the Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation Board understands his or her role and duties because each has received board training, prior to joining the Board. A select number of the initial board also received more intensive training to further assist in project implementation. This training included how to effectively work with entrepreneurs, how to create an entrepreneurial environment, how to leverage various resources for entrepreneurs, and how to properly support the Enterprise Facilitator. As time goes on, the board continues to recrAndrew County Commissionersuit and train new members.

The NWMEF Board usually meets once a month. During the meetings, the Facilitator will ask the board for assistance with specific issues facing clients. The Board spends an hour brainstorming resources and possibilities so that each issue can be successfully resolved by the client. The board also monitors the progress of the project through monthly reports from the Facilitator on client activities, including the number of new or expanded businesses, and new or retained jobs. Once a year the Board conducts random client surveys to assess the project.
