The Creative Collective is a non-profit organization in Fremont, Nebraska. We are currently located in The May Brothers Building, a beautiful three-story landmark in the heart of historic old town Fremont. The May Brothers Building has cultivated a unique environment within itself, with each floor emphasizing a different pillar of a strong community.
Entrepreneurship – Education – The Arts
We occupy the second floor of The May Brothers Building and embody the “Entrepreneurship” and “Educational” aspects of this thriving community.

The second floor is our headquarters. Its home to entrepreneur alley, a dedicated section of office space available to local entrepreneurs who are launching their next big idea. it is also home to a co-working space where anyone with a membership can have access to all the amenities found in a traditional office facility. members that work from home will have access to conference rooms, printers, computers, cubicles and more.
The third floor is a network of classrooms and presentation / meeting spaces where we will host a variety of educational opportunities such as computer programming, culinary, art classes and community programs
Thriving communities don’t create themselves.
IN GALLUP’S BOOK ‘ENTREPRENEURIAL STRENGTHSFINDER’, THE AUTHOR JIM CLIFTON STATES THAT IT IS UP TO THE LOCAL CITY LEADERS TO IDENTIFY AND NURTURE THE ENTREPRENEURS WITHIN THEIR COMMUNITY. JIM ALSO writes that “EACH CITY NEEDS ITS OWN HIGHLY INDIVIDUALIZED PLAN BECAUSE EACH CITY HAS ITS OWN UNIQUE ENTREPRENEURIAL TALENT – AND EACH MUST FIND IT, MAXIMIZE IT AND RETAIN IT.”
THROUGH STRENGTHS’ ASSESSMENT AND TRAINING, WE SEEK OUT INDIVIDUALS WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY WITH NATURAL ENTREPRENEURIAL ABILITIES AND PROVIDE THEM WITH ESSENTIAL START-UP BUSINESS NEEDS SUCH AS FREE OFFICE SPACE, TECH SUPPORT AND EASY ACCESS TO ACCOUNTANTS, ATTORNEYS, GRAPHIC DESIGNERS AND MORE. ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STARTS FROM THE GROUND UP. LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR ENTREPRENEUR PROGRAM AND HOW YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT BY CLICKING THE LINK ABOVE.
WE HAVE A PASSION FOR EDUCATION AND ENRICHING THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE IN FREMONT AND THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES. We CURRENTLY OFFER A CODING SCHOOL, WHICH IS AN IN-DEPTH ONLINE COURSE that LEAVES STUDENTS WITH CAREER READY SKILLS. WE ALSO OFFER A FREE SUMMER CODING CAMP WHICH EXPOSES STUDENTS OF ALL AGES TO THE WORLD OF CODING. Participants will WORK on PROJECTS THAT APPLY THE FUNDAMENTALS they learn. OUR INTENTION IS TO EXPAND OUR PROGRAMS TO INCLUDE A WIDE RANGE OF EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL AGES.
