Emerging Prairie was founded on the idea that "a rising tide lifts all boats". We create events, programs, and meetups to gather folks together to develop a community. They are curated to connect and engage our region to explore and celebrate innovation, bright spots, and new ideas.
Our events and programs follow the three communities that we support, plus a category that caters to all:
Programs and events dedicated to celebrating our region's entrepreneurs, giving resources and access to underserved segments, and providing a moment of connection between one another.
We're exploring what it means to put North Dakota on the map. We believe that agriculture technology is the answer, and the Grand Farm Initiative is the platform. Our events and programs in "innovation" support agtech and related industries.
We've seen that impact is driven by new technology - entrepreneurs, tech evangelists, and everyone in between need folks who can create and develop new technologies. We support this community through Emerging Digital Academy and events and programs that are catered to tech enthusiasts.
The Fargo-Moorhead community and our wider region is full of folks who might not fall into entrepreneurship, innovation, and technology - yet they still deserve to be supported and appreciated. Our events and programs below are meant to do just that.
