It’s one thing to make a promise to yourself; it’s another to shout it publicly – loud and proud. That’s exactly what we do every time we tell the world “We Don’t Coast.” Whether it’s on a billboard, a T-shirt or spread throughout the pages of this publication, our regional brand is a promise to all that we’re going to work for it, rolling up our sleeves and putting in the hours to attract and retain the nation’s best talent, grow our businesses, and make our region a premier place to live, work and play.
The 2015 edition of Omaha: We Don’t Coast celebrates businesses, organizations, institutions and neighbors that refuse to coast, achieving success in and elevating our thriving metropolitan area, a region centered in so many ways beyond geography. We cherish our families and the award-winning schools that educate them, our pervasive philanthropic spirit and our thriving arts and culture scene.
If you are thinking about expanding your business, moving your family or coming on your own, we welcome you, we look forward to working with you, and we’re going to work hard to impress you. We promise. No coasting allowed.
