  • Episode 1: Bank of North Dakota on loan programs and restarting business

    As the only state-owned bank in the country, the Bank of North Dakota serves a vital role in business in the state. Through their work with local lenders and range of programs, they were instrumental in North Dakota receiving the most number of PPP loans granted per capita in all the states. Eric Hardmeyer, president and CEO of Bank of North Dakota, explains what it means as we are restarting business in North Dakota, as well as other programs BND offers, including student, ag and disaster loans.

  • Episode 2: DCN and wireless connectivity throughout the state

    Remember just a few months ago, when we learned that COVID-19 had hit our country and our community. When many businesses closed, we began working remotely and adhering to a new set of social norms. Suddenly Zoom happy hours, virtual conference calls and webinars, and e-learning became our reality. While most of us spent this time in front of our screens safely at home, there was a large effort behind the scenes to keep us all connected. Dakota Carrier Network, in particular, was on the front lines bringing reliable Internet access to homes and businesses across the state. Take a listen as Seth Arndorfer, Dakota Carrier Network CEO, takes us through how they kept us wired together, and what other industries stand to benefit from the technology behind wireless connectivity.
