On Monday, April 12th, Peter Hauck started as the new Community Manager for Zeal. On Tuesday, April 13th, he proposed the idea for an event, New + Aspiring Entrepreneurs Meetup with Featured Speakers. Now, guess what? That event is set to take place just one week later on Tuesday, April 21st, at 4:00 PM.
As is the new norm, this will be a virtual event taking place on Zoom. We’ve seen a lot of great community connection happening at the virtual events that have taken place in the last few weeks in the Sioux Falls startup community. Hopefully you’ve had the chance to join us for a virtual 1 Million Cups or the Virtual Startup Social earlier this month, but if not, it certainly isn’t too late to start connecting through online events.
The New + Aspiring Entrepreneurs Meetup is especially aimed at entrepreneurs with brand new ventures, partially planned opportunities, or soon to launch businesses, but it is also wide open to anyone in the Sioux Falls startup community to attend. The three featured speakers at this free event will be Walter Portz of Helen’s Plan, Nikki Wallenberg of Twisted Sisters Sweetz, and Travis Nye of Spellbound Magic Shop. They will each take the floor for about ten minutes, then there will be time for questions and discussion before the hour-long event concludes.
If you’d like to partake in an adult beverage during the meetup, you can take advantage of Remedy Brewing Company’s Startup Sioux Falls deal: 30% off crowlers or 6-packs from their tap room. You can simply give them a call at (605) 271-6193 to place your order. They have curbside pick-up available at 401 East 8th Street, Suite 120.
Startup Sioux Falls and Zeal Center for Entrepreneurship will also be giving away three $50 gift cards different local businesses. In order to be eligible to win gift cards to Zandbroz Variety, Stensland Family Farms, and Oh My Cupcakes, all you have to do is both register for and attend the New + Aspiring Entrepreneurs Meetup with Featured Speakers.
