The Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development continues to work in our community to cultivate what has become a vibrant scene for startup businesses.

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).

As 2018 nears its conclusion, the economy continues to boom in the Lincoln area. With September drawing to a close, big announcements of expanded facilities and operations highlighted some notable success stories in the manufacturing and retail areas of business. 

From sporting goods to natural pet foods, aerospace products and renewable energy pursuits, these expansions show that business in Lincoln is enjoying incredible success and reaching for more. This continued and substantial investment in areas such as research and development, workplace renovation and in some cases, brand new buildings, sends the message that companies can extend their successes and carry forward with ambitious plans for their companies.

“We decided from an economic development perspective that it makes sense to look at recruiting startups for a variety of reasons,” said Christina Oldfather, LPED’s Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship. “We can have a broader impact with smaller companies.”
