Nebraska Tech Collaborative – Aksarben Foundation

Nebraska Tech Collaborative is an Aksarben Workforce Initiative and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. With over 100 partners, our mission is to build a world class tech talent ecosystem right here in Nebraska.


We are a business-led Aksarben Workforce Initiative committed to convening leaders from government, education, and not-for-profit organizations across the state to develop, attract, and retain tech-talent and entrepreneurs to Nebraska.

Tech jobs are found in every company and industry sector. Agriculture, Nebraska’s biggest industry, has a significant tech component and is a huge growth sector for careers in tech.  But tech jobs in Omaha, Lincoln, and Nebraska have grown more slowly than other, similar cities and states. The tech sector is the fastest growing sector in the country and world. But the reality is that the fastest-growing sector is leaving and will continue to leave Nebraska behind if we don’t act now.

The NTC is going to work to increase the number of tech jobs in Nebraska by 10,000 and the number of new tech companies in Nebraska by 300 by 2025.  We need everyone involved – businesses, government, educators, non-profits – all working together as one with one message to drive scale.

Our goals and metrics are:

  • Growing Tech Talent
  • Improving Diversity
  • Creating Tech Start-Ups
  • Increasing Nebraska’s Tech Profile
