2020 HEY! Sioux Falls Corporate Innovator of the Year Finalist

June 22, 2021 • Boyce Law Firm, LLP

In early 2020, Boyce Law Firm attorneys, Paul Tschetter, Tommy Johnson and Patrick Knecht, set out to make a difference in the entrepreneurial community. With the boom of new businesses starting up in Sioux Falls, they saw a chance to reach out to the new entrepreneurs and make sure they had everything they needed to succeed. By bringing their strong desire to build relationships and help others, along with their service-based offerings and years of experience, these Boyce Law attorneys felt they needed to do more for their community.

Boyce Law Firm, LLP soon joined the Zeal Accelerator Program, now known as Startup Sioux Falls, as a member and sponsor. Startup Sioux Falls is a community organization that connects small business owners and entrepreneurs to one another and to the startup ecosystem in the Sioux Falls, South Dakota metro. Paul and Tommy have presented several times on topics relevant to any business, startup or otherwise. Through their service to Startup Sioux Falls, they were honored with a nomination, HEY! Sioux Falls Corporate Innovator of the Year.

HEY! Sioux Falls was born out of a collaboration between the Greater Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce, the Zeal Center for Entrepreneurship, 1 Million Cups and Startup Sioux Falls. It is an annual event where businesses are nominated and recognized by entrepreneurial community leaders for their impact, either by building great businesses or by pushing the entrepreneurial community forward.

Eighteen finalists were selected in six award categories and winners were announced on Thursday, May 20 at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Sioux Falls. For more information on award categories, award finalists and winners and to learn how you can get involved, please visit heysiouxfalls.com.

Boyce Law Firm would like to congratulate all the winners and thank HEY! Sioux Falls for nominating the Firm for this prestigious award. “We’re looking forward to a great year of growth in Sioux Falls,” says Tommy Johnson, “and looking forward to counseling our clients to set them on a path to ongoing success. It is truly our pleasure to serve and be a part of our entrepreneurial community.”
