Broadcaster Press 03 March 4, 2014 www.broadcasteronline.com Wire Me Awake conference March 5 at USD By Travis Gulbrandson travis.gulbrandson@plaintalk.net Next week the Muenster University Center (MUC) will be a gathering place for area entrepreneurs and students interested in getting ideas, learning new things and networking. On March 5, the MUC will be the site of the third Wire Me Awake conference, which aims to promote various aspects of entrepreneurship. “We do that by showing some success stories of people who’ve done tremendously well, and we also hope to have some track discussions where people can actually contribute so they’re not just being told what to do, they’re also helping others,” said Ben Hanten, conference organizer and co-founder. In addition to being the site of the conference, USD – the Beacom School of Business, specifically – is its primary sponsor. Hanten said this developed after the previous Wire Me Awake, which took place last October. “We actually put together the third one on very short order because of the school’s schedule,” Hanten said. “Our first couple of years, we had about 160 people attend. We’ve still got about a week left of ticket sales, but we’re hoping that our TODD’S ELECTRIC SERVICE “The Line To Power” Design/Build • Fiber Cabling • Commercial • Residential Service Calls • Boom Truck with Auger • Trenching Serving the Beresford and Vermillion Areas 1-800-560-2518 1221 Cornell St., Vermillion, SD • 605-624-5642 201 NW 13th St., Ste. 3, Beresford, SD • 800-560-2518 University of South Dakota event might be pushing about 300 attendees. “This will be definitely our biggest numbers, and because of our partnership with the U, we’ve been able to attract a lot more students,” he said. USD’s involvement also enabled the conference to host a student business competition that offers $4,000 to its first-place winner, $3,000 to the second, $2,000 to the third and $1,000 to the fourth. “Really, that is something that’s not only getting a little attention from the schools, but somebody could basically win a free semester of college out of that,” Hanten said. “But it’s cash, it’s not a scholarship, so it’s kind of nice.” Among the main activities are three speakers, Jeffrey Hayzlett, Jenny Blake and Dario Meli. A Sioux Falls native, Hayzlett hosts “C-Suite,” the number-one primetime show on Bloomberg Television. “He is going to be speaking about what it takes to survive in a business going forward in 2014 and beyond,” Hanten said. Blake is a former Google employee and author of the book, “Life After College.” “Her goal is to speak specifically to students about crafting (their) goals and (their) missions right after college,” Hanten said. Meli is co-founder of a company called Hootsuite and currently works at Quietly in Canada. “His message is to say that the world of startups isn’t limited to Silicon Valley and San Francisco, and he’s going to show why places like South Dakota, Canada and others might be positioned better … for start-ups,” Hanten said. Wire Me Awake’s offerings continue into the afternoon with a trio of breakout group discussions. Individuals who are interested in attending Wire Me Awake can find ticket information at the event’s official Web site, http://wiremeawake.com/ . “We don’t necessarily have a deadline, but we might have a sellout this year, which we’ve never had to worry about before,” Hanten said. “We are limited to 350 (attendees), and that includes all speakers, judges and volunteers, so we probably have less than 50 tickets left. Visit our Web site at www.broadcasteronline.com Color, Style, and a Winning Personality “Part of that is the MUC is limited on space, and the other thing is (the afternoon breakout sessions) will have much more impact if they have 30, 40, 50 people in the room, and not 150,” he said. Wire Me Awake has been held in the past at the National Field Archery Association headquarters in Yankton, and was organized by Hanten, Chad Ekroth, Dan Specht and Thomas Ritchie. Hanten said that while it might sound clichéd, he feels the biggest things attendees get from the conference are networking opportunities. “We really hope that people who are starting off in business, people who are interested in starting a business, and people who have expertise can connect,” he said. “We really hope we can accelerate some people’s plans for businesses. “This doesn’t have to be just for entrepreneurs,” he said. “This might also be a recharge for people who are working at a normal business job and trying to look at innovative ways and new approaches in business that will only help everyone.” If You Read This...
