The personalized local newsletter for the Fargo Moorhead startup scene.

A big congrats to Dieumerci Christel of Enlight for being selected to pitch at the Techcrunch Startup Battlefield sessions last week. Here is his pitch and here is a nice feature Techcrunch writer Natasha Mascarenhas prepared on Enlight. She often produces interesting pieces if you want to follow her online.
If you are a MN business that:
  • Primary business activity is in innovative technology or in an innovative business model or product
  • Business operations and headquarters are located in Minnesota
  • Business has not been in operation for more than 10 years
  • Business has generated less than $1 million in revenue since inception
Then you may want look into the Launch MN innovation grants, as their application portal has recently opened.
If this is your first time reading Startup Digest Fargo, I recommend checking out past recent issues to read about other resources & programs featured in those issues.
