Nice guy Jeff Slobotski does more than smile and shake hands. For nearly ten years, he has celebrated and championed entrepreneurs throughout the Midwest. His relationships, ideas, and collaborative nature have allowed Jeff to organically create, grow, and shape a passionate, creative community.

And national media have taken note. Jeff’s efforts in the region formerly known as "flyover country" has been highlighted by The New York Times, CNN, TIME, Inc., Fast Company, Forbes, and Kiplinger magazines.

His most notable initiatives to date – Silicon Prairie News and the Big Omaha/Big Kansas City conferences – are second only to his inaugural startup: his family. Jeff, his wife, Molly, and their children call Omaha home.
