Nicole Evans,
Grand Forks Center Director

Nicole Evans joined our ND SBDC team in January of 2017.  She came to us from the University of North Dakota, where she was the Associate Director of Technology for the College of Business and Public Administration.  Nicole is owner (for seven years) of one, and co-owner (for four years) of another small business in Hillsboro, ND.

Nicole is looking forward to building relationships with clients, lenders and resource partners. She believes the client comes first, and because she has experience starting her own businesses, she can empathize with some of the more challenging aspects of taking the leap to becoming your own boss.  Nicole's areas of expertise include start-up logistics, operations management, technology and market research.  She is also one of two ND SBDC Certified Export Counselors.

When asked "what 5 characteristics would others use to identify you," she replied: dependable, funny, curious, organized and efficient (we agree)!  Nicole loves to learn new things and grow professionally and personally, all while striving to help others do the same.
