5 Reasons to Participate in Startup Weekend

Sioux Falls is hosting their 4th Startup Weekend November 10-12 at Zeal.

Sioux Falls Startup Weekend is back for their 4th installment! This year they’ll be at the Zeal Center for Entrepreneurship, November 10-12. In just 48 hours you’ll receive the resources, connections, and knowledge to go from idea to execution. And as you learn how to create a real company, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders, entrepreneurs, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started.

I’m a huge fan of Startup Weekends and think everyone should participate in at least one. Today, I’ve got five reasons why you should participate this year:

Reason #1 why you should attend, it is a ton of fun. You’ll make new friends, help create something that may have long-term value, and it won’t feel like work all. Startup Weekend is about having a good time while launching a business, fun it specifically a goal.

Reason #2, you’ll learn valuable entrepreneurship skills that will help advance your career. The process of launching a business in 48 hours will absolutely translate into real-world skills that you’ll encounter again. Consider this your “free” real-world training.

Reason #3, the networking and relationships you build over this weekend will last a lifetime. I still stay in touch with many of the people that I’ve met at Startup Weekend over the years. Who couldn’t use a stronger network?

Reason #4, the price of your ticket also includes food! And this will be top-notch catering too, no pizza & chips.

And Reason #5, if you are still not convinced? I’ve seen people change jobs, even change careers, after their experiences at Startup Weekend. Maybe you are ready for a career change too.

This is Sioux Falls’ premier entrepreneur event of the year, don’t miss out. Limit tickets available, register today.
