“Open for Business: A Nebraska Women in Agriculture Agripreneurship Series” is a monthly webcast series that highlights the entrepreneurial spirit of women in agribusiness from across the state, offering creative insights and the stories behind what it takes to build a business.

The conversations focus on surviving business shocks such as disasters, regulatory changes and shifting family dynamics. Female agribusiness leaders are interviewed by Jessica Groskopf, director of the Nebraska Women in Agriculture program.

“We know it’s a challenging time for our state, which is why we are excited to showcase the grit, determination, and success of female agribusiness entrepreneurs in Nebraska,” Groskopf said of the webcast series.

“It’s our hope that their stories inspire and uplift other women to pursue their own goals and that attendees can pick up some creative and useful business insights along the way.”

The webcasts will be held at 6:30 p.m. Central time on the second Tuesday of each month. They are free to attend, but registration is required. Upcoming guests and registration links will be posted here soon.

TRIPLE E EQUINE is a family owned and operated business near Beaver Crossing, Nebraska. Emily Shook and her sisters, Hannah and Sarah Eberspacher have grown up loving, owning, and showing horses locally and nationally in the AQHA, APHA, PtHA, and NSBA associations. As the fourth generation to live on the family’s farm, they have decided to incorporate their horse hobby by diversifying the farming operations to include a horse motel.

On May 11, 2014, the family farm suffered signi?cant damage by an F-3 tornado, including destroying the horse barn and indoor arena. Because of this tragic event, they decided to rebuild in a new direction. When the family rebuilt the barn and arena, they also built an attached Bunkhouse, which can be used as lodging for travelers.

Emily created Triple E Equine during college through the Engler Entrepreneurship program at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. Her sisters and her were natural business partners so they of?cially launched their business in 2016 to meet the needs of both travelers and their horses. They also offer indoor and outdoor horse boarding. Check out the horses they have for sale, too!
