Nebraska's biggest city, after decades as a sweet spot for big business, is attracting a surge of entrepreneurialism, especially in e-commerce and software development. "It's hard to put your finger on why we're seeing all of this," says Mark Hasebroock, the head of Dundee Venture Capital. But whether it is because of the excess of capital or the low cost of living, pockets of angel investors are emerging in Warren Buffett's hometown, and corporate veterans are jumping ship to start businesses, like eCreamery, an online store that enables users to create and ship their own brands of ice cream.
