Innovation expo held in Sioux Falls

Several entrepreneurs and investors gathered in Sioux Falls for a chance to connect with one another.

The annual Innovation Expo was hosted by Startup Sioux Falls and the Enterprise Institute on Thursday. The conference aims to bring founders and funders together for breakout sessions and networking opportunities.

This year's speaker was Aneela Idnani and she's the owner of HabitAware. Her company, through the use of smarts bracelets, helps people choose healthier activities and retrain their brains.

"Just knowing that this is a possibility to be able to listen to people telling their stories of how they started the companies, it just starts help getting the juices rolling," Idnani said.

The expo began 16 years ago in Brookings.
