How can we be Better? A startup ecosystem roundtable discussion

How can we be better? A Start Ecosystem Roundtable Event

Each city has a unique small business and startup ecosystem, consisting of startups, community groups, co-working spaces, venture capital sources, consultants, coaches, government agencies, non-profits, financial institutions and other entities. Some of these components are visible and tangible. Other elements, such as culture, are immeasurable and intangible.

At this event, we are going to discuss how Sioux Falls' entrepreneurial ecosystem ranks and what opportunities exist to become better, more inclusive and more helpful to emerging entrepreneurs.

The format will include discussions by round-table panel members that we consider to be entrepreneurial thought-leaders and community-evangelists. This session is free and open to the public. This will be an open dialogue event and a conversation among all participants.

Featured discussion leaders:
Matt Paulson
Karla Santi
Clint Brown
John T. Meyer
Jason Ball

Join if you’re interested in being in the conversation of what makes up a terrific business community and where we should pursue improvement.
