Applications Open for the Entrepreneur District

Jan 5, 2023

Dakota Business Lending is now accepting applications for the Entrepreneur District, their newest resource for business owners. The Entrepreneur District is a transformative space located on the second floor of Dakota Business Lending that brings together ten small business owners from various industries. Entrepreneurs in Residence will have access to both the office space they need and the collaboration they crave to create, work, and grow…all at no charge.

Those who wish to hold their office at the Entrepreneur District must have one of two goals: the desire and potential to grow and scale their business, or the desire to sustain their business at its current level by creating a more robust, well-rounded business. Residency at the Entrepreneur District is free for business owners who meet the following qualifications:

  1. Must be a business in operation and in good standing
  2. Must be in need of physical office space
  3. Must have an eagerness to collaborate and a desire to be transformed

Dakota Business Lending will provide entrepreneurs with the office space, mentorship, education, collaboration and partnerships, and capital needed to continue to advance not only their business, but themselves as entrepreneurs.

Resident applications are due February 1, 2023. To apply or for more information, please visit their webpage. Any questions and completed applications can be sent to Michaela Schell, Entrepreneurial Development Director and Head of District, at
