Startup Pitch Night

October 24, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT

Join us as we party in the name of startups on Tuesday, October 24th from 5:00 – 7:30 PM at the Startup Sioux Falls offices at 100 E 6th St. You’ll get to hear some of our recent CO.STARTERS graduates present their business ideas in a pitch competition with real cash on the line. This time, we’re doing something a bit different. Through our SBA Community Navigator grant, we have expanded the number of CO.STARTERS cohorts occurring throughout our city and state. Graduates from some of our partner organizations will be participating in the competition.


The best part? You’re a judge. Collectively, the members of our audience will serve as the fourth in a panel of live judges at the event—so make sure to come and cast your vote!

Tickets to Startup Pitch Night are free to Startup Sioux Falls members (inquire with Startup Sioux Falls staff for a discount code) and $20 for non-members. The night will include a signature CO.STARTERS “happy half hour” with some complimentary appetizers and a cash bar. Next on the agenda for the night is the celebration of CO.STARTERS graduates from all of the recent cohorts, so come ready to mingle with other members of the Sioux Falls startup community, and congratulate our graduates on a job well done.

The winner of the competition will take home $1,000 for their venture.

The evening’s agenda:

  • 5:00 – 5:30 Happy Half-hour
  • 5:30 – 5:40 Welcome and Recognize Recent Graduates
  • 5:40 – 6:10 Pitch Competition Part 1
