SIOUX FALLS, SD — Zeal Center for Entrepreneurship and Midco, a N.D.-based ISP, announced they have formed a five-year strategic partnership to spur business innovation in the Sioux Falls area. To launch the joint effort, the organizations teamed up to deploy gigabit-speed Internet at Zeal’s campus located at 2329 North Career Avenue in Sioux Falls.

Midco provided the direct fiber connection, and Zeal performed internal hardware upgrades to deliver faster and better-performing Internet connection to their resident entrepreneurs and economic development organizations operating at Zeal.

"As a business owner, the increased speed alone allows us to be more efficient, effective and get more done," said Shane Thomas, Learn.Create.Build.Academy’s co-founder, whose business develops and hosts technology camps for kids. At Zeal, Thomas and his partner Adam Learing are scaling their business, now in five states and 16 cities. "Since we run a technology company, gigabit Internet positively impacts our ability to deliver services,” said Thomas. “We can also increase how many campers we host at Zeal, while improving the campers’ user experience."

The combined fiber connectivity and network upgrades went live at Zeal earlier this month with no additional expense to users. Zeal invested approximately $10,000 in hardware upgrades including access points, software and network equipment.

Midco has a history of supporting businesses with innovative communications solutions, including many years of delivering gigabit Internet via direct fiber to businesses like Zeal. In 2017, Midco will expand its capabilities by making gigabit Internet via cable modem available to Sioux Falls homes and businesses.
