Uniting the Prairies- Upish Event

About this Event
What is UP?
UP (www.unitingtheprairies.com) is a moment where the top VCs & angels + Prairie ex-pats & tech leaders come together (virtually) to share knowledge & experience with startups, elevating our Prairie tech community.
UP 2020 was intended to build on what we accomplished in 2019. However, recent events have made coming together a bit difficult. Faced with the choice of cancelling or going online, we knew we had to Unite The Prairies somehow.
So, we are pseudo-proud to introduce an entirely virtual one-day conference. Welcome to UP-ish.
Get a ticket and reserve your spot now – a webinar link will be sent out at a later date.
Participate in 3 virtual panels featuring Prairie ex-pats and tech community leaders.
