It’s time for area startups to sign up for the free space at Intersect Startup Village on March 18th if you haven’t already done so. Should be a good chance to “Intersect” with some folks, get out of the building and maybe meet some students, partners, or fellow founders.

Location: Catalyst, 350 Canopy Street, Suite 130
Presenter: David Z. Brown
Although there has been continued pressure on Congress to act on start-up visa issues the lack of action does not mean no options currently exist. David will examine the various options available to start up companies (including real-life scenarios) to sponsor founders and employees, and with the coming H-1 quota filing deadline David will also touch on options in the event an H-1 filing does not win the H-1 lottery.
How do I go about hiring an intern? What type of reporting is required? Do I have to pay them? What are the advantages for me as an employer in implementing an intern program? Why hire interns? What are the benefits for students, business, and community? In an open Q/A, ask questions, offer your experience, expand the discussion.
Implementing an internship program doesn’t have to be overwhelming. In many ways, it is similar to starting any new program or project. Having a plan is crucial. Asking questions of local people with experience is invaluable. Internships 101 is a great starting point. Panelists include Armen Badeer–Assurity, Kelli Smith–UNL Career Services, Allison Hatch–Intern Nebraska and Kim Michael–1st Job Lincoln.
This year’s Intersect Startup Village will be held at EntrepreneuringDays@UNL. This will give entrepreneurs and business leaders a chance to meet and interact with students during the UNL New Venture Plan Competition on Tuesday, March 18th.

Winning the Healthcare Connect contest was just the beginning. This aggressive and talented group has taken Nobl from idea to market ready in less than one year. Read our latest Big Plate interview to learn more about Nobl’s fast formation and what’s next.
