Featured Entrepreneurs – Emerging Prairie

By | May 16, 2014 at 2:09 pm | No comments | Featured Entrepreneur, Featured Member

A little bit about how and when you got started

Emerging Prairie was created by a group of friends (Andrew Christensen, Miguel Danielson, Jake Joraanstad, and Greg Tehven) to try to raise the profile of entrepreneurs in our region and celebrate the great things happening in the prairie. We started small, with the idea to create a content website to promote the great things happening. However, things quickly changed hosting events such as Startup Weekend, 1 Million Cups, and Startup Drinks. We also do event consulting and entrepreneurial support for emerging companies.

What should people know about your business

People should know that we are dedicated to building and supporting the entrepreneurial ecosystem. We are students of Brad Feld and focused on making our community the greatest place in the world to launch a new venture.

What one tip do you have for other YPs that are interested in starting a business

Start now. There is never a perfect time. Getting together with a small group of friends to solve a real problem is important. Its hard work, however, when you focus on solving problems that drive you nuts, good things can happen.
