Extreme Tour Blastoff at SD Launch!

3 -2 – 1- BLASTOFF!! There could not have been a more appropriate event to kick-off this 2012 Extreme Tour season! With our good friends at the South Dakota Launch in Mitchell South Dakota, the team was thrilled to welcome 200 college students from all over the state. Some traveled for many hours in the snowy winter weather to arrive at South Dakota’s only Entrepreneurship event of its kind! Everyone made if safely and ready to launch their entrepreneurial spirits!

The event was jam packed with ROCK STAR speakers!  Dr. Heidi Neck flew in from Babson College in New York to give an eye-opening keynote that followed a panel speaker, Dustin Pratt of Solid Rock Clothing, who joined the discussion via Skype from Sunny San Diego. The students asked stellar questions to the insightful panel of SD entrepreneurs also including Josh Aberson and Royce McDaniel. The President of More Than Cheer and National Speaker, Brittany Rose shared her insights and experiences with students in two “Entrepreneurship Story” sessions, digging deep into resources and tools she uses to be a rock star. After the event – the Extreme Team was so hyped up on entrepreneurial energy, that while touring the Corn Palace (yes, it is made of corn) Arel trusted Brittany to do what she does best – She taught him how to back handspring.  Video coming soon!!
