More than 70 people joined Silicon Prairie News and Jelecos for our meetup on Feb. 24 immediately following the Nebraska Summit on Entrepreneurship.

A record number of close to 600 entrepreneurial-minded folks joined Nebraska Entrepreneur for the day-long conference that featured keynote speeches from Christian RenaudMary Ann O'Brien and Steve Kiene. The meetup that followed served as a networking session during which attendees talked about the happenings of the conference but also delved into deeper conversation and built connections.

For us, this meetup served as a way to meet with diverse crowd than we continue to see with each and every meetup we've held so far this year. In addition to the high number of developers and entrepreneurs, plenty of other folks — from accountants to attorneys — were present.

Our thanks to Jelecos for sponsoring this meetup. Look to Jelecos' job opportunities to learn more about joining the company's growing team.

For more from the Summit and the meetup that followed, see the video above featuring Jeff Slobotski of Silicon Prairie News and Sarah Tucker of Jelecos welcoming people to the meetup, and check out the photos below.
