Intersect Conference brings together entrepreneurs, ideas

Apr 11, 2013

Pitching and building a start-up, mentoring, and networking are among the topics of an entrepreneurship conference Friday in La Vista.

It’s called the Intersect Conference. Formerly known as the Nebraska Entrepreneurship Summit, the day-long conference is designed to bring together small business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs, and mentors to learn and network with each other.

Brian Ardinger is a member of the Intersect Conference committee and managing partner of Lincoln-based NMOTION, a start-up helping entrepreneurs build their businesses. Ardinger says entrepreneurship in Nebraska isn’t just focused on technology.

"The opportunities have never been more available to folks to start companies because of the technology’s made it easier to build and collaborate on things with less money and less resources. And I think the talent base is more educated and has more access to capital, more access to people and experts that you need to build something from scratch."

Ardinger says the start-up community has grown significantly in Nebraska over the past five years.
