A Night of Celebration

Join our Honorary Chairs Willy Theisen and Van Deeb as we bring together the UNO and Omaha community for an evening of fun, food and philanthropy to celebrate and support young entrepreneurs, students, startups and programs that change lives and strengthen our community.

This playful and fun-spirited event will be unlike anything you have attended!

The evening starts at 6:00 p.m. with a silent auction to raise funds for the many programs that provide training, scholarships and startup funding to UNO entrepreneurs as well as to numerous social ventures in the community.

Dinner and entertainment is at 7:00 p.m. Many surprises are planned to delight and amuse you!

Award Nominations

A brief and light-hearted awards ceremony will follow, with recognition not only for student awards, but also awards for UNO alumni.  Did you know that more companies have been started by UNO alumns than from any other university?  This event is the perfect opportunity to network, reconnect and celebrate the entrepreneurial achievements of our alumns in five categories:

Submit as many nominations as you like in any categoy. You can even nominate yourself!
