Invest Nebraska

Invest Nebraska provides operational assistance and seed capital, develops entrepreneurial/innovation ecosystems, and collaborates with public and private partners across the state to create jobs and ensure prosperity.


Invest Nebraska plays a critical role in the statewide infrastructure of entrepreneurship and small business creation. The firm has been recognized by CB Insights as the most active venture investor in the state and in 2020 was recognized by Pitchbook as the third most active venture capital fund in the Mountain and Midwest Region.

 Invest Nebraska provides educational resources and operational assistance, funds and manages various incubators and accelerators, supports programs around key industries, and builds relationships with in-state and out-of-state investment groups.


 The Nebraska Startup Ecosystem plays a critical role in the statewide economy and has seen significant growth in recent years. This is due in part to strong partnerships across the state from government, higher education, industry and community leaders.
