Dakota Business Lending Unlocks a New Chamber of the Vault – Featuring Non-Financing Business Resources for North Dakota Entrepreneurs

Apr 11, 2024

Dakota Business Lending (DBL) is excited to announce the expansion of the Vault (, a comprehensive online library connecting entrepreneurs with resources to start, grow, and expand their businesses. The website opened its first “chamber” in 2022, holding all the financing programs available for business owners in North Dakota. Today, they are opening a new chamber containing all the non-financing business resources that exist across the state.

The expansion comes as a response to the growing demand for support among business owners beyond financing, highlighting a wide variety of non-financing resources critical for business growth from counties across the state. “We understand that financing is just one piece of the puzzle for entrepreneurs,” shared Steve Dusek, President & CEO. “With this expansion of the Vault, our hope is to help business owners get the resources – financing and non-financing – they need to succeed…all from resource providers right here in North Dakota.”

The new chamber of the Vault contains nearly 170 resource providers spanning across 50+ counties in North Dakota. Coupled with over 250 financing programs, the website serves as a one-stop shop for local business support…all at your fingertips. Users answer a few short questions about their business and generate a list of resources tailored to their needs such as:

  • Local business start-up and growth resources
  • Networking groups and business cohorts
  • Business advising and counseling
  • Special topics such as financing, marketing, and succession planning

This new chamber of the Vault is co-sponsored by one of North Dakota’s top resource providers – the North Dakota Small Business Development Center.

Dakota Business Lending plans to expand the Vault to include more resources in the future. To access the Vault, visitors can visit or like their Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
