Hey Sioux Falls is an event that celebrates the trials and triumphs of entrepreneurship. It will be held on September 13th, 2018 at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Sioux Falls.

At the event, seven local entrepreneurs will receive awards for building great businesses or pushing the entrepreneurial community forward. Awards that will be distributed include New Startup of the Year, Growth Startup of the Year, Startup Champion of the Year, Investors of the Year, Corporate Innovator of the Year, the Social Impact Award, and Hustle of the Year.
