Startup Pitch Night

January 25 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC-5


Startup Pitch night is back! Join us as we party in the name of startups on Tuesday, January 25th from 5:00 – 7:30 PM at Icon Event Hall. You’ll get to hear from our latest CO.STARTERS cohort and watch as some of our graduates compete head-to-head in a pitch competition with real cash on the line. 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 cost $10. The night will include a signature CO.STARTERS “happy half hour” with some free startup seltzer, complimentary appetizers, and a full cash bar. Next on the agenda for the night is the celebration and graduation of CO.STARTERS Cohort #3, so come ready to mingle with other members of the Sioux Falls startup community, and congratulate our graduates on a job well done.
