The personalized local newsletter for the Fargo Moorhead startup scene.

Here’s another plug for the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for Charlie’s Chow. At the time I submitted this, he is 23% of the way towards the goal with only a little over a week to get there. Check it out here. If you work for a company that may need/want to buy gift items for your customers or employees, I recommend checking out his Corporate Snacker tier (150 bags for $1,000).
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.
