Fintech company Unison plans to initially locate its regional headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska. The project is expected to create hundreds of new jobs over the coming years.
The company has leased space downtown in the Landmark Center at 13th and Farnam Streets.
"Omaha is very affordable, people have great quality of life, they have a high-quality education system, a strong workforce and frankly a really business-friendly environment," said Ryan Downs, president of Unison.
Unison is expected to access public incentives under the ImagiNE Nebraska Act, according to local officials.
"Nebraska is thrilled to welcome Unison, an outstanding innovator and industry leader, to our exciting and growing ecosystem of global fintech firms," said Nebraska Department of Economic Development Director Anthony L. Goins. "Investments such as this one further prove that Nebraska is emerging as a national leader in the fintech sector. We are honored to be selected as Unison's number one choice for expanding its company's bright future. We look forward to the incredible contributions Unison will bring to the city of Omaha and Nebraska as a whole."
