Meet Cameron Smith, President and Co-Founder of Kodiak Cakes! Cameron, a Lincoln native, is our featured speaker at this month’s Economic Development Breakfast on Thursday, May 27 from 9 – 10 a.m.

As the third-best city in the country for young professionals and the second-best city for millennials, Lincoln truly is the best place for young professionals to live, work and play. Our city’s talent recruitment and retention efforts are successful because of programs like the Lincoln Young Professionals Group, which provides exceptional programming and events to unite, empower and engage this influential demographic that comprises nearly 35 percent of Lincoln employees. Why is involvement in Lincoln’s YP group so important for the young professionals within your organization?

There are many reasons why Lincoln remains an ideal location for companies and their employees to enjoy the good life.

So, why is Lincoln the Place to Be? Low unemployment, low cost of living, ample opportunities to enjoy scenic views and recreation opportunities, a prospering tech scene and a lifestyle that is second to none are some of the biggest reasons why Lincoln is a place where our current and future workforce can call “home”.

The Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development (LPED) has announced five recipients of the LaunchLNK program for 2021. LaunchLNK helps startups get established and grow in Lincoln by providing funding, resources and opportunities.
