"Hello, Silicon Valley? This is Nebraska. Look out."
That's an artist's rendering of the conversation that would currently be happening if states and regions could talk to each other. Because while certain tech hotspots seem like permanent fixtures, our report Best Places to Live for Tech Entrepreneurs found that Lincoln is an up-and-coming force to be reckoned with on the tech scene. Our sources cite the city's great community vibe as one of its biggest selling points, but its reasonable cost of living is another factor in its favor. So pat yourself on the back, Nebraskan business owner. You know what's up.

If you're looking for any of the following types of insurance, we've got you covered:
You may have heard this type of coverage called a "BOP," or Business Owner's Policy. This policy packages general liability insurance with property coverage at one affordable rate, giving you protection if a client should be accidentally injured at your location or if one of your employees causes property damage or bodily injury at a client's site.
Commonly called "errors and omissions" or "E&O" insurance, this type of coverage protects you if your client should claim that mistakes, negligence or omissions you make on the job caused the client a financial loss. For professional services companies such as IT businesses, this is one type of insurance you shouldn't work without.
Many states require companies with employees to carry workers' comp insurance, which pays for medical care and disability coverage for your employees if they should suffer a work-related illness or injury.
If you have employees, you need EPLI. This type of insurance protects you in the event that one of your employees claims an employment practice violation, such as sexual harassment; wrongful termination; or gender, race or age discrimination.
