About LADP

Where Business Comes Naturally

Around here, we understand what businesses need to succeed—all the right elements coming together in the right way at the right time. The Lincoln area is an excellent model of this convergence. The ready availability of key resources, valuable incentives, and strong community partners makes southeast Nebraska an inherently great place for business.

To support companies as they develop and expand, we’ve created a region with a diverse economy, a solid transportation network, an educated population, and a strong technology foundation. We’ve received a lot of praise about the ease of doing business here, including recognition from Inc. magazine as one of the best small metro areas for starting and growing a business.

Location Advantages

The first rule of business is location, location, location. Southeast Nebraska provides a central location with quick access to several large interstates, numerous motor carriers, two class one railroads, several short-line rail systems, and multiple national air cargo transporters. In addition, the area is supported by strong telecommunication networks.

Quality People

Those with firsthand experience appreciate working with the people in the Lincoln area. Employers have described their employees as dedicated, reliable, knowledgeable, and productive—proof that the legendary Midwestern work ethic is not a myth.

Of course, we value education as well as hard work. Southeast Nebraska is home to nationally recognized Southeast Community College (recently ranked no. 8 in the nation by CNNMoney), the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, and several high-quality state and liberal arts colleges that produce a young, energetic, and skilled workforce. And this youthful population grows each year.
