Israeli startups looking to flourish in the United States

Innovation isn’t necessarily just about new things or inventions. Often, it’s about new value and new markets.

Which is why as Nebraskans, we look to capitalize on some of our natural advantages, such as agriculture and food production and how to maximize their capabilities for our economy and daily life. As our startup community continues to flourish in Lincoln, we must always look to new ideas and new ways to stimulate its success and its offerings.

At the end of September, the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development visited Israel along with the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, Greater Omaha Chamber, UNL Office of Research and Economic Development and UNeMed/UNMC to attend various events that promote startups in ag-tech and food tech in Israel.

As the demand for skilled workers continues and the careers of tomorrow evolve, one thing remains constant—education will need to keep pace with changing environments.

To grow Lincoln’s workforce and increase talent immigration, the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development announced the launch of their new marketing campaign – “Lincoln the Place to Be.” 

The economy in Lincoln and throughout Nebraska continues to boom. However, challenges exist to make it the best that it can be for everyone in Nebraska.

On July 17, Governor Ricketts hosted his 4th Annual Governor’s Summit on Economic Development at the Lincoln Marriot Cornhusker Hotel. This year’s theme was workforce development, which remains a key cog for keeping Lincoln’s economy vibrant and strong.

With more than 450 community leaders and economic development professionals in Lincoln for this year’s summit, a wide variety of topics were discussed with the Lincoln Chamber office providing informed representation on the speaking panels.
