“It was honor to participate in this intimate event, and observe the level of passion from Secretaries Vilsack and Perez for finding solutions to the quickly changing labor markets in rural areas," White commented.

Phynd Technologies, Inc., founder and CEO, Tom White, was invited to attend a White House roundtable on how business leaders and entrepreneurs are increasingly turning to rural America to site quality, good-paying technology jobs that present growth opportunities for rural workers, businesses, and the nation’s economy overall. The roundtable was held in the Roosevelt Room at the White House and was hosted by Secretary of Labor Tom Perez and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack with ten business leaders in attendance.

The event provided a venue for the employers and two Cabinet members to discuss opportunities on how to accelerate this trend and identify key actions that the Administration and private sector can take to accelerate ongoing progress.

Mr. White, who has over 20 years of experience in building software companies in the digital media and healthcare markets, was pleased to participate in the roundtable with senior business leaders from Sony, The Weather Company, Red Hat and other technology companies.

“It was an honor to participate in this intimate event, and observe the level of passion from Secretaries Vilsack and Perez for finding solutions to the quickly changing labor markets in rural areas. We are proud of our work at Phynd in hiring, training and promoting IT job creation in Central Nebraska; this also gives us a truly competitive business advantage,” White commented

The birthplace of Phynd (pronounced “find”) was Kearney, NE, home of the University of Nebraska-Kearney. Kearney provides a well-educated, hard-working pool of IT job candidates. The area from Central Nebraska to Omaha, to Des Moines and Kansas City, is often called “Silicon Prairie,” and has incubated and given birth to multiple high-tech companies. Phynd’s genesis and rapid growth can be attributed to its “Silicon Prairie” roots.

“Invest Nebraska is excited to have one of its portfolio companies recognized by the White House for its job creation in rural Nebraska,” said Dan Hoffman, COO of Invest Nebraska. “Tom and his team have clearly demonstrated that a startup high-tech company can grow in Central Nebraska.”
