The Big Omaha 2012 schedule

At Big Omaha 2011, emcee David Hauser (above) kicked off each day with enthusiasm for the entrepreneurial wisdom that was to be shared. This year, an equally energetic Antonio Neves will lead the day as our emcee.

With today’s addition of Square co-founder Jim McKelvey, it’s finally time to unveil the complete Big Omaha 2012 schedule, featuring our event venues, open to the public parties and speaker times.
