Nebraska’s bankers do a fantastic job of ensuring that our state’s businesses have access to capital.
Banks know how to make loans. Yet sometimes there is a company whose request does not meet the bank’s lending guidelines. Invest Nebraska becomes a partner with the bank, providing additional loans while taking a secondary collateral position. In special circumstances, when a company meets our investment criteria, we also provide the equity capital needed to close the bank loan. Some of the banks we have worked with in the past include Union Bank & Trust, Pinnacle Bank, and First National Bank. Partnerships align the self-interests of those involved.
Since 1889, the Nebraska Bankers Association has represented the state’s banking industry at the state and federal levels. We are closely aligned with the Association: new startup companies and small businesses, while small today, will someday grow into larger businesses needing the services and guidance of Nebraska banks.
