So last fall I made an outreach to Paul Singh and asked him to bring his Airstream and Results Junkies Road Tour to Sioux Falls — and he agreed. The cost to bring Paul’s Road Tour here is $5,000, and I was confident enough that I could find sponsors to cover that cost that I personally put up the money. I am passionate about our community and honored to having Paul come.
Don’t know who Paul Singh is? No worries, here’s a brief bio:
Paul is an entrepreneur, speaker, investor, and Airstreamer. Previously, Paul was a Managing Director at 1776 and a General Partner in 1776’s Seed Fund. Prior to 1776, Paul was the founder of Disruption Corporation (acquired by 1776) and general partner of Disruption’s post-seed venture capital arm, Crystal Tech Fund. Before that, Paul was a Partner at 500 Startups, an accelerator and venture firm headquartered in Silicon Valley that has invested in over 1,500 companies across 50+ countries. Paul has founded a few of his own startups (two successful exits and a number of failures in between) and spent some time at AOL, Carmax, PBworks and Symantec. Paul can be reached at twitter.com/paulsingh.
My favorite summary of Paul and his Road Tour is this video from last year’s Big Omaha conference where he talks about how he went from a bricklayer to an investor investing in 1700 companies, as well his goals for this Road Tour.
This is happening! Paul is coming the week of April 24, 2017. Would your business be willing to help out by sponsoring some of the $5,000 fees? I’m open to how we turn your sponsorship into value that week, but at the minimum, we’d love to have Paul and his team swing by your office for a visit.
Other activities that will be taking place that week include local angel/investor discussions, office hours with Paul, panel discussions, networking & socials, and business tours.
