Fargo

The personalized local newsletter for the Fargo Moorhead startup scene.

Congrats to Dot’s Pretzels on the recently announced acquisition by Hershey. This company is a great story of a small packaged food business starting by selling to friends, then the Pride of Dakota-type circuit and later making a strategic move by bringing in R.D. Offutt Company as a co-owner to fuel growth & capabilities. Being a growing & sustainable consumer packaged good (CPG) is difficult, and Dot’s will no doubt continue to be an aspiration for many entrepreneurs - they already were before this Hershey deal!
This Wednesday is the Lean Startup Innovation Workshop, hosted by ILT Academy. This workshop will expand your skills, and teach you innovation methods, formalizing your startup idea in an interactive class experience.
