Big Omaha Video Series: Roger Fransecky of The Apogee Group

Omaha September 23, 2010 by Jeff Slobotski

Produced by Silicon Prairie News. Video by Malone & Company. Post-production by Event1 Video.

After debuting our Big Omaha 2010 Video Series on Tuesday with Scott Harrison's moving presentation, we're excited to bring you our second video which features visionary and business leader Roger Fransecky of The Apogee Group.

Fransecky's insight, vision and leadership challenge served as a motivating presentation to open our first day of talks on Friday, May 14. We were delighted to have Fransecky, an Omaha resident, play a special role in the event.

This past April, in anticipation of his involvement in Big Omaha and his deep interest in growing Omaha's entrepreneurial ecosystem, Fransecky contributed a guest post to Silicon Prairie News: Roger Fransecky shares thoughts on entrepreneurship & Big Omaha. This post serves as a valuable challenge for our community.

If you aren't already receiving The Apogee Group's newsletter, I'd highly encourage you sign up today at Fransecky's emails are filled with valuable stories and encouraging nuggets of truth.

Big Omaha is Silicon Prairie News' premier annual event held each May to inspire, educate and connect entrepreneurs, especially those with an interest in the tech industry. Big Omaha 2011 will be held May 11-13, 2011 at KANEKO.

I love what you are doing with last year's video, SPN! It's great to be reminded of the most powerful moments of a wonderful event. Congrats!

Roger is an inspiration and full of thought provoking comments. We are lucky to have him in Omaha.

These are great opening remarks and I'm happy to revisit them here.

I love the Emerson quote, "as human beings we are starved for horizons." We are deeply connected to and conditioned by our immediate environment. I agree with Roger, the wide open spaces of Nebraska engender even bigger thoughts and doings.
