2 GUYS + AN IDEA
Big Omaha began in 2009, as the brainchild of Dusty Davidson and Jeff Slobotski, co-founders of Silicon Prairie News. The inaugural event brought together 400-plus entrepreneurs, innovators, and creatives to hear almost a dozen nationally recognized speakers. The goal of the event was simple: inspire attendees to follow their passions, build the businesses they love, and strengthen their creative communities.
GREASING THE WHEELS OF INNOVATION
And for going on a decade, that’s exactly what Big Omaha has done: connected thousands of founders, entrepreneurs, and investors through thought-provoking, inspirational and engaging annual conferences.
We’ve heard from countless past attendees about how Big Omaha has given them that extra push, that boost of inspiration to take an idea and make it real.
Year 10 will be the last Big Omaha as we know it. In 2019 the conference will be reimagined as it becomes an integral piece of a larger whole. We look at this year not as an endpoint, but rather a new beginning. We’re asking ourselves now: How big? How big can we go next, and who’s coming with us?
