SIOUX CITY | The winners of a contest for local entrepreneurs later this week will get a chance to present their plans to Ho-Chunk Inc., CEO Lance Morgan said.

"Whoever wins it is welcome to come down (to Ho-Chunk's Winnebago, Neb., headquarters) to pitch it to us," Morgan said. "If it makes sense, we’ll back you. We’ll figure out a way to help you. We do it all the time, so it’s a real offer."

Morgan's comments were part of his keynote address Monday at Briar Cliff University that kicked off Entrepalooza, an annual, four-day event that celebrates entrepreneurial spirit and innovation.

As part of Entrepalooza, the annual competition, Swimming with the Sharks, will be Thursday at Briar Cliff. This year there will be separate categories for student groups and local businesses and entrepreneurs.  Presentations and judging for the general public contest will begin at 7 p.m. and at 8:30 p.m. for the college student contest.

Ho-Chunk, the Winnebago Tribe's economic development corporation, operates 34 divisions around the country and globe.
