Get Started

Welcome to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Entrepreneurial Ecosystem. The university has a longstanding tradition of fostering the entrepreneurial spirit both across campus and throughout the state of Nebraska.

The university is home to one of the world’s oldest and largest new venture competitions and has helped many students launch successful companies; past competitors include familiar brands such as Hudl, Allied Strategy and Venel Marketing.

Regardless of your major, Nebraska provides opportunities to connect with our network of graduates, many of whom started businesses based on skills they learned beyond the walls of the College of Business.

This page was created to make it easy for you to find people in your college or department who will help you turn a good idea into a great business. If you need any direction or have any questions, start by contacting the Center for Entrepreneurship directly.

We are here to help you Start Something! Go Big Red!
