ABOUT FORWARD EVER:

Forward Ever is the one-stop resource for LOCAL independently owned businesses in the Greater Newark area.  We are a member-based business alliance that connects small business entrepreneurs to the resources they need to INCREASE REVENUEATTRACT NEW CUSTOMERS & GAIN ACCESS TO GREAT RESOURCES & OPPORTUNITIES.  
As the FIRST urban affiliate of the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies – BALLE, we amplify the voice and collective economic influence of local entrepreneurs and innovators, and advocate on behalf of local businesses at all levels of government so you can mind the store while we work to ensure your interests are represented.

We Support, Educate, Promote, and Advocate on behalf of the small LOCAL innovator. Our focus is to build a Greater Newark community by supporting and empowering LOCAL businesses and to create a BUY LOCAL precedence!
 
We provide:

· FREE consultations and discounts to a myriad of resources exclusive to our members

· Interest FREE loans up to $10,000k over 24 months

· Strategic Marketing and Promotion

· Targeted Media Exposure… 

Membership dues go directly toward creating a Local First precedence that will result in more customers supporting LOCAL businesses. 

Now is the time to join forces to protect, foster, and strengthen the local businesses in our neighborhoods that give us a sense of place, ensure our diverse culture, and provide us with strong unique communities we are proud to call home.

Our Mission is to provide a support network for local independently-owned businesses that facilitates cooperative promotion and purchasing, rebuilds local supply chains and food systems, and leads to “Buy Local” initiatives, sustainable communities, job creation, for local, independently owned businesses in the Greater Newark Area. 

Our Vision is to create dynamic collaborations that expand economic self-reliance, job creation and a sustainable local economy where local businesses are prosperous, and contribute to a healthy environment and the wealth and well-being of all citizens.

Our Goals

1. Create a strong member network for local innovators, equip them with the

resources they need to prosper, create jobs, and function in harmony with

local ecosystems.  

2. Increase your PROFIT and Keep Dollars in the Local Economy – for every $100 spent at a locally-owned

business, $73 remains in the local economy, compared to that of a non-locally

owned business which only retains $43. We know that entrepreneurship fuels economic

innovation and prosperity, and serves as a key means for families to move

out of low wage jobs and into the middle class.

3. Increase small business visibility and foster Economic Inclusion; locally

owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant

communities, linking neighbors via economic and social relationships,

leading to strong healthy engaged communities.
