For the third consecutive year, Nebraska has been awarded one of the 2018 Site Selection Governor's Cups. This is the sixth year Site Selection recognizes the state with the most qualifying new and expanded facilities per capita, which Nebraska claims for its capital investment activity in 2018. Texas was also a winner for having the most qualified projects of any state. Lincoln also placed fourth in the 2018 rankings for Metros with a Population Between 200,000 to 1,000,000. Lincoln’s ranking is up from ninth in 2017, with 29 projects in total. The Omaha Metro area was once again at the top of the rankings for the same population class.

It was an amazing turnout for Lincoln’s recent Techstars Startup Weekend, with over 100 people participating in the 54-hour weekend from January 25-27 in the Capital City. The goal of the weekend was to pitch an idea for a business, form teams and get their business ready to launch within the three-day period.

The Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development continues to work in our community to cultivate what has become a vibrant scene for startup businesses. However, the road to business success often has many challenges. Whether it’s providing businesses with the resources to succeed or potential employees the education required to thrive, it’s vital to present opportunities to continue growth in our community.

Get your first customer. Get ten more customers. Repeat step two.

That was one snippet of advice from Hurrdat and opendorse Co-Founder and President Adi Kunalic to a receptive audience at Startup Grind X, one of the many events throughout Lincoln during its seventh edition of Techstars Startup Week. The October 25 event continued a week-long series of meetups, networking events, panels and other discussions aimed to the cultivation of the robust and powerful Lincoln startup community.

Throughout the week, events focused on the many aspects of beginning a startup business, maintaining it and eventually taking the next steps to grow it. For the seventh year in a row, the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development organized various events with the help of presenting sponsor Assurity. With events scattered around Lincoln at various venues such as Turbine Flats, The Barnyard, Fuse and elsewhere, the schedule presented opportunities to participate in both small group and larger group settings at different times throughout the day.

The Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development received a Gold Excellence in Economic Development Award for its Lincoln Economic Dashboard, a project in the category of Annual Report from the International Economic Development Council (IEDC).
