In 2001 local civic leaders and philanthropists had a vision for Omaha to develop a technology and engineering entrepreneurial business community. By tapping the expertise and talent pool available at the Peter Kiewit Institute, the Suzanne and Walter Scott Foundation developed the Scott Technology Center to meet this need and achieve the vision of helping to technologically grow Omaha.
The Scott Technology Center represents an environment optimized for the development and growth of technology driven businesses. From the incubator program designed for the purpose of assisting entrepreneurs to our heavily fortified and redundant datacenter designed to store business critical data, the Center has the programs and facilities to meet the ever changing needs of the information technology and engineering community.
Since the inception of the Center, the campus had developed into a technology and engineering cluster comprised of over 220,000 square feet of facilities, designed to support the unique needs of technology-based companies.
Developed by the Suzanne and Walter Scott Foundation (a public, non-profit foundation) the Scott Technology Center is designed to facilitate partnerships targeting engineering and information technology.
By partnering with technology and engineering-based firms we foster long-term collaborative partnerships, provide unique practical experiences for the best and brightest students in the state, and actively participate in economic development.
To develop and facilitate the commercialization of emerging technologies while adding value to partnerships with industry, government and academia.
