Greg Tehven is an entrepreneurial ecosystem builder in Fargo, North Dakota, and Executive Director for Emerging Prairie. Emerging Prairie works as a similar concept to Startup Junkie, connecting and building their entrepreneurial community - and they do it in some big ways, like organizing the world's largest 1 Million Cups chapter, hosting a TEDx event with over 2,000 attendees, and bringing people together for brunch at midnight. In this episode, Michael and Greg discuss the value of hard selling the connectedness of the community and leveraging the assets a region has to build on the bright spots. Greg is married to his city; he takes the long view and works tirelessly to build community and bring the best out of himself and those around him. Through humor, hard work, and humility Greg and many others are turning Fargo, North Dakota into a premiere, startup destination.
