Applications Open for LaunchLNK Grants
Deadline is November 6

The Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development (LPED) has announced that applications for the next round of LaunchLNK grants will be accepted through Friday, November 6.

The LaunchLNK program provides startups with a $25,000 grant, connections to mentors and potential corporate partners and professional services from HBE, Cline Williams, Suiter Swantz, Eakes Office Solutions and Firespring. Eligible startups include Lincoln-area companies that have a scalable business model. 

“We are thrilled to help and encourage founders to take their companies to the next level, while also continuing to build and support our local startup community,” said Christina Oldfather, Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship with LPED.

Startup companies that receive an award through the LaunchLNK program have the opportunity to leverage other programs and funds, including grants and investment programs offered through the Nebraska Department of Economic Development and Invest Nebraska. In addition to gaining outside sources of capital, the awarded startup companies will also have the opportunity to join Fluent Studio’s virtual accelerator program.
