Many small Northern Nevada business owners, even some here in ArrowCreek, are involved with Nevada’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (NCET), a member-supported nonprofit organization that produces events to help individuals and businesses explore and use technology.
The latest edition (June 18, 2015) of the NCET Newsletter had an interesting article on Nevada’s unmanned aircraft systems sector.
Nevada’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology’s roots go back to 1999, when community and business leaders, along with EDAWN, the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada, created the TechAlliance, an organization that promoted entrepreneurism and technology commercialization throughout Northern Nevada.
In 2003, the TechAlliance joined forces with NCED, the Nevada Commission on Economic Development, to create Nevada’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology, a new state-wide organization charged with encouraging and empowering entrepreneurs and fostering an environment in which high-growth entrepreneurial companies could succeed and flourish.
In 2007, NCET was spun-off as an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
