Because of its robust agricultural diversity, economy and renowned research and innovation resources, Nebraska is well primed to be a hub for sustainable agriculture technology or more commonly called, AgTech. Invest Nebraska Corporation’s (INC’s) project will reach the state’s 93 counties, 89 of which have a population of less than 50,000 and will unlock regional capital to support a robust early-stage capital ecosystem that is currently lacking in the state.
