We are excited to announce that Dakota Certified Development Corporation (Dakota CDC) is now Dakota Business Lending effective January 1, 2018. Along with the name change, we have also moved to a beautiful, new Fargo location.

Not only do we have a new name… we’ve also moved to a new location

Originally founded as Fargo-Cass County Industrial Development Corporation, we have been providing creative financing options to businesses across the state of ND and in western MN since 1982.  In 1996, we changed to Dakota Certified Development Corporation and today we have again evolved to be Dakota Business Lending.  We chose this new name to reflect more of what we do while paying tribute to elements of the previous name and history.

At Dakota Business Lending, we know that small business ownership is an adventure.  Along the road to success, a first-rate financing partner can provide the momentum needed to make a difference in the lives of people, building partnerships that make a difference!  We will continue to deliver on this promise as we celebrate our new name & location.  These forward-looking changes will allow us to better be able to serve our customers and partners while building on our legacy going forward.  If you are in the area, please stop in and see us at our new location. We would love to show you around!

Please update your records with the changes. If you require a specific action from us to make the name change within your organization, please let us know what needs to be done.
