Innovation & Entrepreneurship

Being a city of innovation in all sectors, from cradle to career, that consistently focuses on making things better for our community is vital to Lincoln’s prosperity. Keeping youth, scholars, inventors and pioneers in Lincoln is challenging. Building a culture of innovation that feeds the soul of the next generation of creative thinkers, and striving to be the most connected city, helps ensure our community will thrive.

The goal is to Lift Lincoln Higher by creating a vibrant culture of innovation.
