That’s What They Said

Here is what the community is saying about Native or Not…


“One motto here at Visit Harford is “advocate-partner-create”; Therefore, we are always searching for new and unique ways to promote Harford County businesses, attractions and events.  Native or Not takes a unique twist on the idea of connecting small, locally-owned businesses to newcomers and natives. Upon meeting with the creator, we instantly noticed the same passion and drive to support small business.  (Warning: Her enthusiasm is contagious!) We enthusiastically agreed to host the Native or Not website in our mobile app which really enhanced the appeal of our Coupons/Discounts section. The Native or Not website is easy to navigate and fits seamlessly into our app.  We are excited to see what else can bloom from this synergistic partnership.”

I connected with Ana from the moment we met! She is as warm and welcoming as the message she is extending with Native or Not – creating a community for newcomers and connecting people to make a warm hometown feel. I am thrilled to be associated with such a special person.

“ I truly think it’s incredible. I’ve been a MilSpo for 18 years and this is one of the best things I’ve seen. Way to go for seeing a need & filling a need (just read that in the Lorax voice lol)”
