South Dakota Technology Business Center was founded in 2002 as part of the Forward Sioux Falls economic development partnership. At that time, our mission was to assist in creating and expanding technology-based businesses in the Sioux Falls area.
We still serve many technology companies, but we know that the nature of entrepreneurship is broader and the needs more diverse. So in 2016, we renamed ourselves Zeal. We expanded our partnerships with businesses and universities, connected with more area leaders as resources and launched a new co-working program. And we’ve got more plans in the works.
You can find us at 2329 N. Career Ave., adjacent to the Southeast Technical Institute and the south campus of the University Center. We’re within a 10-minute drive from Downtown Sioux Falls, Sioux Falls Regional Airport, and the Empire Mall retail district.
