February 27th, 2009
Cornhusker Marriott – Lincoln, Nebraska
If you’re at all interested in the current state of entrepreneurship in Nebraska, I recommend attending the 2009 Nebraska Summit on Entrepreneurship. The schedule is included below, and features Bo Fishback of the Kaufmann Foundation who has been previously featured on SPN.
Last year’s summit featured the following talk by Carl Schramm of the Kaufmann Foundation. It still stands out in my mind as one of the best presentations I’ve heard in a long time. This video, and all of the videos from the previous summits, can be found here..
