AREA News, Events, News - 03.09.12

One of the most important accomplishments of the recently concluded legislative session was the passage of several bills focused on creating new momentum for developing and attracting businesses rooted in technology and innovation—Talent and Innovation Initiative. The Nebraska Department of Economic Development is preparing to implement these programs, and additional information on each bill will be made available on the NEDED Website. New programs will provide incentives for businesses to:

  • Increase the number of Internships, to keep our brightest students in the state
  • Attract more Angel Investors, to stimulate new business creation. This is a very attractive tax credit program
  • Stimulate construction of spec commercial buildings, to help attract new businesses to the state
  • Push new technology into the market. To capture the value of our strong university system and entrepreneurial thinking across the state

Eric Zeece from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development and Dan Hoffman from Invest Nebraska will present.

The workshop will be held  at 10:00 AM Friday March 16th at the Keystone Business Center, 402 Norris Avenue, Room 302, McCook.
