New video series highlights western Nebraska businesses

SIDNEY, NE — An organization dedicated to helping grow business in Nebraska has created a video series to highlight western Nebraska entrepreneurs. 

The Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) is releasing a four-part video series called the Entrepreneurial Journey Video Series. Each episode puts the spotlight on a different business. 

The series will look at Flyover Brewing Company in Scottsbluff, Double Dips Ice Creamery of North Platte, Noyes Irrigation/Route 61 Roller Dome in Grant and Nexgen Outfitters of Sidney.

The NBDC came up with the idea for the video series after meeting with Sidney leaders following the sale of Cabela's to Bass Pro. The NBDC hopes the series helps, along with their consulting and training, Sidney residents to choose business ownership as their next chapter.

"Deciding to take the leap to start a business brings about numerous questions," Nebraska Small Business Development Center director Sara Bennett said. "The stories shared in the Entrepreneurial Journey video series are intended to help prospective Sidney business owners gain a greater understanding of what small business ownership is from peers who are already owners."

In a statement, the NBDC said industries featured in the video series are businesses Sidney residents considered desirable for continuing economic growth in their community.

The videos will be made available on the following days at 10:00 a.m. MDT and can be watched by visiting this link
