Here’s a (shameless) shout out to my employer Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corporation (GFMEDC) on this recent Fargo Inc feature “Why Is Fargo Growing? The GFMEDC Is A Big Reason Why”. I am very fortunate to work here to do my part in being resourceful to many people to help our economy, with my specific niche in entrepreneurial development. Creating these Startup Digests is just one example of that.
