Issue #45 — View online — Suggest a link

The personalized local newsletter for the Fargo Moorhead startup scene.

As a FYI, throughout my last few issues, I’ve been promoting ND’s Operation Intern applications, which opened 2/1. Due to a crazy fast amount of demand, the application window has already closed as all the available funds are now allocated. This is both a sign that company’s like this program but also that it could likely use more state funding. If this follows the same pattern of the last few years, you can expect the next application window to open around 2/1/23.
Congrats to the awards recipients of Emerging Prairie’s 1 Million Thanks awards.
  • Patty Post (Founder and CEO, Checkable Medical) – Rookie of the Year Award. This award is given to an early-stage entrepreneur that has made significant progress.
  • Brady Nash and Ryan Goodman (Co-founders, BNG) – Entrepreneurial Leader of the Year Award. This award is given to individuals that have demonstrated significant growth and success beyond our region.
  • Scheels – Team Player Award. This award is given to an organization whose teammates contribute in meaningful ways to support the startup community.
  • State Senator Ron Sorvaag and State Representative Michael Howe – Dr. David Wells Belief Award. This award is given to individuals who believe in the potential of entrepreneurs and the difference they can make in our community.
