Who Is Paul Singh?

2016 Big Omaha Speech

From bricklayer to investor

A video recording of Paul Singh's Big Omaha talk on May 7, 2016. How he got started in technology, became an investor, and why he decided to start the Results Junkies Road Tour. This video is about 40 minutes, but it is well worth the time.

2017 Results Junkies Road Tour

The full list of cities and activities

Paul is driving across North America to visit the places that startups actually start (and grow) their businesses. In 2016, he has driven over 25,000 miles and visited 40 cities. They are ramping that up for 2017 with more stops, more events, and more investors coming along with us.

At each stop, Paul creates a week-long series of events for entrepreneurs, investors, and community leaders. Along the way, he'll mentor thousands of entrepreneurs, visit incubators and coworking spaces, hold investor dinners, and dive into the local tech culture. And he is bringing his friends too.

Why I brought Paul Singh to Sioux Falls

A brief overview of why this tour is happening

So last fall I made an outreach to Paul Singh and asked him to bring his Airstream and Results Junkies Road Tour to Sioux Falls — and he agreed.

The cost to bring Paul's Road Tour here is $5,000, and I was confident enough that I could find sponsors to cover that cost that I personally put up the money. I am passionate about our community and honored to having Paul come.

What to expect during Paul Singh’s Results Junkies Tour

Paul and his team are going to be in Sioux Falls the entire week, but that doesn’t mean that you need to take 5-days off work and attend every single event. Instead, we are going to be planning different events for different groups throughout the week, and you should pick the ones that are in alignment with your interests.

Sioux Falls Schedule

Sioux Falls Tour Schedule

This is where we will be during the week of April 24

On Monday & Tuesday we have scheduled most of our private events. These events are going to be at specific to businesses, each with their own agenda and goals. While they are private, we are opening most of them up to our sponsors to attend if space is available. Email me for details if you want to attend one of these private events.

Wednesday through Friday will be when we have all of our public events. I have tried to create diversity in the events so that you can attend a few without hearing the sample topics discussed.
