Intersect, an upcoming conference aimed at the Nebraska entrepreneur and startup community, will feature a keynote address delivered by Brad Feld outlining the essential elements of a strong and robust startup community. He is the managing director of the Foundry Group, a venture capital firm in Boulder, Colo., that invests in early stage software and Internet companies throughout the U.S.

“Intersect: Connecting Nebraska’s Startup Community” brings together innovators, investors and others to meet, mingle and share lessons learned. The conference will feature Startup Village, where entrepreneurs can showcase their ideas and products. The conference will also feature about 20 short presentations in a “TED Talks” style format, a widely popular lecture series that has generated millions of Internet views.

Intersect is hosted by the University of Nebraska’s NUtech Ventures, UNeMed, and other startup-focused groups such as Southeast Community College and the Nebraska Department of Education.
