Great Ideas…We’ve all had them, but many ideas never leave the idea phase. The Innovation Market strives to bridge that gap from inception to reality! Put on by Sioux City Growth Organization (SCGO), the Innovation Market is Sioux City’s one and only business idea competition. Individuals submit their ideas online to take part in one of the biggest think tanks in the area.
The top 5 ideas from the night pitch their ideas a few weeks later to SCGO members for a grand prize of $5000 along with professional services.

GO University is a program created and facilitated by the Sioux City Growth Organization, an organization formed on the basis to attract and retain young professionals while developing leaders and making a difference in the community. Specifically, GO University is a 9 month program designed to help introduce college students to life skills after college. The program goes above and beyond to educate students using real world experiences from local young professionals. The program includes discussions such as: preparing for interviews, dressing for the workplace and social events, financial planning, community involvement, and building a positive social media presence.
Our goal for GO University is to help make the college to real world transition a little bit easier. As young professionals, we understand that bridging this gap requires more. The foundation of GO University is cultivating new relationships. GO University will help provide you with the necessary tools to become active community members and a desired employee prospect.
