Omaha, Nebraska – Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) and a department of the College of Business Administration is excited to announce Scott Asmus as the new NBDC SourceLink® Nebraska Network Builder.
Asmus begins leading SourceLink® Nebraska efforts in August of 2020 to develop a one-stop location for entrepreneurial resources. The new program is designed to provide an integrated system of services for small business and entrepreneurial ventures. SourceLink® Nebraska coordinates the development and implementation of an entrepreneurial resource network in the state of Nebraska.
“I am very excited about being tasked with the opportunity to lead SourceLink® Nebraska development efforts and serve Nebraska entrepreneurs," said Asmus. "It is an honor to be part of this project and a team member of the Nebraska Business Development Center at the University of Nebraska Omaha. SourceLink® Nebraska will assist Nebraska entrepreneurs with navigating a robust system of resources to help them achieve their dreams of building a business. Not only are small businesses and entrepreneurs the bedrock of our nation’s economy, but are the key to a thriving Nebraska economic environment. My goal is for SourceLink® Nebraska to become an impactful resource and the first stop for every entrepreneur.”
Most recently, Scott was part of the Professional and Organizational Development team with NBDC. Scott specialized in assisting employers, organizations, and educational institutions with developing customized professional training, work-based learning, and workforce development strategies. While consulting with businesses, Scott worked to identify training and non-training professional and organizational development needs.
Prior to joining NBDC, Asmus served as a subject matter expert for Registered Apprenticeship with the Nebraska Department of Labor – Education and Training. Due to Scott’s efforts, Nebraska business participation in Registered Apprenticeship increased over 40% between 2016 and 2020. Notably, the first Youth Registered Apprenticeship programs in Nebraska were launched because of Scott’s work. Scott has provided business consulting in industry sectors, such as healthcare, information technology, advanced manufacturing, and transportation.
