Experts praise Nebraska's entrepreneurial climate

Entrepreneurial experts from the Kauffman Foundation and Pew Charitable Trusts are on a four-state tour studying how state government and entrepreneurs intersect, which lead them to Nebraska.

Speaking at a roundtable event at the State Capitol in Lincoln, the foundation expert told state senators and entrepreneurs that Nebraska’s policy fostering entrepreneurship is doing well but always has room for improvement.

The event was put on by the Council of State Governments and resulted in advice, such as members of the Legislature should attend entrepreneurial events to keep in touch with issues.

Nebraska was praised for its “visible policy” toward entrepreneurship, which was said to excel in favorable fees and tax structures, simplifying processes, tax credits and incentives.

Nebraska received a B grade for overall friendliness to small business and received high grades for employment laws, health and safety, tax codes, licensing and networking programs.
