Congrats to Pops & Bejou Games on reaching the goal on their recent Kickstarter.
Here’s a plug for the Wefunder equity crowdfunding campaign for 7 Generation Games, who has ties to our region. They make educational video games and the tools to create them.
A welcome to Kaelan Reedy, who is the new Executive Director of Evolve Grand Forks, which is an organization that supports a culture of entrepreneurship in the Greater Grand Forks community. Best wishes in your work and for the community of Grand Forks to support this ecosystem building organization.
While I’m YEARS past the proper age for the FMWF Chamber Young Professionals Network, I was once very active in this group and it played a huge role in my personal development of who/where I am today, as well as the many connections & friendships made. I noticed this upcoming “Welcome” event, which looks to be a great way for someone to tip their toe in & check it out. I can also see they have a ton of upcoming events as part of a YPN Week (8/8-8/12).
