Message from Vice Chancellor Green:

Entrepreneurship is an area that we are particularly passionate about in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR).  We are committed to improving the future of Nebraska’s people, businesses and communities.  IANR’s innovation in research, teaching, and extension education is greatly enhanced through the active engagement of entrepreneurs.  To build on our commitment to the entrepreneurial spirit we are in a partnership with Gallup, Nebraska Department of Economic Development, and the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce; to create the Entrepreneur Accelerator System.  (More information below).  We are currently recruiting companies to participate, so if you or someone you know could benefit from this program please visit the website below.”

Recently, the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, and Gallup formed a partnership to increase the rate of entrepreneurial growth in Nebraska. The Gallup Entrepreneur Acceleration System (EAS) started in 2011, and the first year was a resounding success, with many organizations realizing improved business metrics due to the learning from the program.
As a Nebraska businessperson, we invite you to take part in this unique opportunity to receive training in the core concepts of Gallup’s consulting model for business growth.

The Gallup EAS program is based on the science of behavioral economics. Through years of research and studying the way people think and behave, Gallup has discovered the powerful results that companies can achieve when they develop engaged human capital. In simple terms, engaged employees lead to engaged customers, which increases sustainable profit, and reduces turnover.
If you are interested in this program, please visit our website to register for the 2012 cohort and to learn more about this exciting program. You will find past participant testimonials and a video from Governor Dave Heineman describing the success of this program.
