The personalized local newsletter for the Fargo Moorhead startup scene.

It has been exactly one year since Techstars updated Startup Digest from a calendar to more true digest of curated info (and the Revue platform looks great & is easy to use). Net new subscribers has increased 43% over that time. I hope you are enjoying receiving this and I encourage you to pass them on to friends as well.
Here’s a plug for these two entrepreneurs who have both launched crowdfunding efforts this past week.
The Initiators Fellowship equips early stage social entrepreneurs with the support they need to transform their ideas into scalable, sustainable ventures that serve and enrich Greater Minnesota. They are currently accepting applications (through 6/15) for their Cohort 3 Fellowship. The program provides wrap-around training, mentoring and guidance—plus $30,000 annually for two years.
My colleagues at ND Small Business Development Center are hiring a Business Advisor for their Fargo office. This role directly assists entrepreneurs by providing one-on-one individualized business advising & technical assistance to entrepreneurs and small business owners or managers. In case you know of a candidate.
