The Why Chart

WHY US?

With more than 190 years of aggregate software experience, Nebraska Global’s founders and veteran leadership are well equipped for success in the creation, growth, and profitable management of multiple software ventures. The software sector is projected to grow 20% through 2016, and we feel a responsibility to help Nebraska keep up and be a reputable competitor in the global arena of software.

Our experience in a variety of roles with large and small software ventures with both private and public companies has prepared us to aggressively expand and improve Nebraska’s software ecosystem and create sustainable positive impact in our community.

WHY NEBRASKA?

We see a lot of potential for software businesses in Nebraska. There’s something unsettling about the Cornhusker State ranking last in capital markets (dead last, behind pseudo-state Puerto Rico), but it’s not difficult to see the underlying opportunity for Nebraska Global to make an immediate impact and improve that statistic.

2007 Rank in Venture Capital by State

Nebraska’s governmental entities are ready and waiting to provide economic incentives for high-tech job creation, having recently passed legislation to provide a competitive tax environment. Our timing couldn’t be better.

WHY SOFTWARE?

Software as a Service - Projected Growth

Software is comprised of explosive sectors like Software as a Service (SaaS) where, according to Credit Suisse, market share was estimated at $6 billion at the end of 2008 and is projected to be in excess of $15 billion by the end of 2011. This is a statistic strongly indicative of the industry’s healthy expansion and projected growth of 20% through 2016.

Over the next 5-10 years, computer specialists and professionals will account for nearly 52% of all workers. Job opportunities in technology will be excellent for most workers, but professional workers should enjoy the best prospects, reflecting the progressive increase in demand for higher-level skills needed to keep pace with technology’s exponential advances. In terms of sustainable employment, software continues to lead numerous industry sectors, having proved over time that it is a superior industry in which to create jobs and make a lasting economic impact.

We see abundant opportunity for Nebraska to achieve its true potential as an influential technology market. The economic outlook and financial impact in the software industry is ripe, rich, and generally unmatched.
