The When Clocks


Call it cliché, but the time is now. This state is primed and ready for something big to happen to its economy. The pieces are in place to take Nebraska to an unprecedented level of technological and economic advancement. We won’t push recklessly forward, but we will work with a sense of urgency to achieve our collective goals.

When will you start seeing a change? In the short-term, we would like to launch and fund at least 10 companies within five years. Specifically, we want to:

  • Launch and fund two initial spin-off companies developed from in-house resources within 18 months. One of those companies, Don’t Panic Labs, is already operational.
  • Fund no less than two projects with partner university programs resulting in the launch and spin-off of new companies not only employing, but also partially owned by graduates of the corresponding program within 18 months.
  • Establish adequate deal flow, vet, and pursue opportunities for subsequent development, launch and spin-off of no less than six additional companies within five years.
