Editor's Note: Partner with Prairie Business

You, our Prairie Business readers, are the experts in your field, the eyes and ears at your place of business, and we like to hear what news you have to share.

Prairie Business likes to explore trends in the region’s businesses and industries. It always feels good when we accomplish that goal in stories, taking a look at what companies are doing to innovate and grow.

Sometimes finding trends isn’t always easy, and we appreciate our business partners and other sources who make them known to us. Sometimes our partners give us news tips, and these are especially appreciated – but we always welcome more.

The reason news tips are important is because, like any publication with limited resources, we cannot be everywhere. You are the experts in your field, the eyes and ears at your place of business, and we like to hear what you have to tell us.

There are at least two stories in this issue that came about because of a news tip, and in next month’s issue, which we already are working on, there is another.

Keep them coming, please. We like to consider Prairie Business a partnership not only with our advertisers (though we especially thank them and always welcome and encourage new advertisers), but with companies and industries across the Dakotas and western Minnesota. We have a large following but are always trying to grow our readership and reader input.


What’s happening in your business? What is new in your industry? Tell us, we’d like to know. Also, we try to include employee announcements in our hardcopies whenever we can; but if they don’t make it into a hard issue one month, you can always find them on the Prairie Business website ( These new hires, employee promotions and achievements we publish every Friday. Send your announcements to me at the address below.

Here’s one other way you can partner with us: subscribe, for free, to the digital edition of the magazine. We’ve been announcing on our social pages how potential readers can do this. It’s simple: go to and click on the Prairie Business monthly e-edition.

Bingo, just like that you’re signed up. All you have to do now is wait for the next issue to arrive in your inbox, which, as fast as time seems to pass, won’t be much longer at all. We’re working ahead, keeping busy planning our stories and other content for the next issue ... and the one after that.

We can hardly wait to see it arrive at our own desks. For now, we hope you enjoy the May issue. There is plenty of good stuff inside, and we thank you, our partners and readers, for tipping us off to some of these stories.
