Lincoln and all of small town America face new challenges to cover expenses of aging infrastructure and work force. Tech provides an avenue to create jobs in a short period of time. The new companies we create locally will provide a great tax stream for our community and new high paying employment opportunities. We can't accomplish this without having some tech talent that wants to stick around Lincoln and not go to the big city. Tech will offer the ability for plenty of travel during their career if they wish.
