Nebraska’s winning streak

This March, Nebraska won its third consecutive Governor’s Cup. Each year, Site Selection magazine awards the trophy to the state with the most economic development projects per capita. Nebraska didn’t just win the Governor’s Cup this year—our state clobbered the competition! We had more new projects than South Dakota, North Dakota, and Kansas combined.

A winning streak like this doesn’t happen without a lot of hard work. Leaders from every corner of our state have diligently invested in the growth of our communities. They know from experience that Nebraska is the best place in the world to live, work, and raise a family. Existing businesses have expanded their operations here, and we have recruited new business to our state as well.

This week, I will kick off a Governor’s Cup tour with our team from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development. We’re traveling to Lincoln, Omaha, Bloomfield, Norfolk, Columbus, Minden, and Sidney to say “thank you” to the businesses in Nebraska who helped our state win the Governor’s Cup once again.
