You could win $50,000

with 6 comments

Invest Nebraska is holding a statewide venture competition this winter.  The prize?  $50,000 of start-up cash for your business idea or existing business needs.  Silicon Prairie News has the scoop:

  • It will take place on December 11th in Lincoln at the Del Ray Ballroom in Lincoln’s Haymarket.
  • Open to anyone 18 or older who is interested in operating a business in the state of Nebraska; all entrepreneurs with a startup idea, as well as local business owners looking to expand or improve their businesses.
  • The Competitions are based on the success of the annual Hormel Family Foundation’s Business Plan Competition in McCook, Nebraska. It was the goal of Invest Nebraska Corp. to take this template to other Nebraska communities, allowing others an opportunity to carry the Nebraskan tradition of entrepreneurship forward.
