Grow A Business

Dakota Rising

Are you seeking business expansion opportunities? Would $10,000 help? Would you value the opportunity to network with other growth-oriented entrepreneurs throughout the state? If your answer is YES, you may want to consider becoming involved in the Dakota Rising Fellowship program.

The Dakota Rising Fellowship program was designed to help business owners reach their full potential. Benefits of the Fellowship program include:

  • A $10,000 grant to help support business and professional development
  • Access to a community of rural South Dakota entrepreneurs focused on growing their businesses.
  • Access to a business coach, mentors, a peer advisory board and focused technical assistance.

Since 2009, 15 local businesses have been awarded Dakota Rising Fellowships. Today these businesses continue to give back to the community by creating jobs and investing in the future of Lawrence County.
