Welcome Danny Schreiber to the SPN team!

It's with great pleasure that we welcome Danny Schreiber to the Silicon Prairie News team!

We're thrilled to have Danny officially on board to help in continuing to take Silicon Prairie News to the next level!

I had the opportunity to meet Danny about a year ago, while we worked alongside each other at our respective "day jobs".  I was immediately amazed at his level of dedication, intellect and vision for the entrepreneurial and creative class.

After Dusty and I convinced him, or at least we like to attribute his staying in Omaha to our efforts, he has been a constant player in many of the things we've done.  Whether it's coming up with new ideas for interviews and content, to having a hand in helping to coordinate our events such as the Pitch Sessions and most recently Big Omaha, we've realized that his dedication and passion to building Omaha and the region's entrepreneurial and creative class is at the same level as Dusty and I.  And for that reason, we have decided to officially bring Danny into the Silicon Prairie News family!

Please help us in welcoming Danny to the team and feel free to contact him any time at

Our loss is their gain, Danny. Good luck, and I love SPN almost as much as the Northstars shirt. I have one just like it from another life back in Minasooda, ya!
