Our Past Competition Winners

Just like a startup company, Invest Nebraska has moved and pivoted to keep up with the state’s dynamic entrepreneurial ecosystem over the years. Invest Nebraska held its first regional business plan competition in Scottsbluff in April 2009, resulting in a small $25,000 equity position in the winning company, Victory Hill Farm.  From that time until 2011, subsequent regional and statewide competitions were held in McCook, York, Norfolk, Peru, Lincoln, and Omaha. While not all of these are high potential companies, Invest Nebraska is honored to include these past competition winners in our investment portfolio and celebrate the vast number of entrepreneurs, both big and small, across Nebraska.
