We are part of The Trust Project.

FARGO — Hundreds of members of the Fargo-Moorhead business community met to share and hone their skills at a business expo in Fargo Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 23.

More than 300 business leaders, executives and entrepreneurs gathered at the Avalon Events Center to hear 20 business leaders give "TED-style" talks about networking, leadership development, and business insight.

The Executive Expo also had booths for 50 local businesses. Host and organizer The100,inc., a local business initiative, said the expo focused on lessons you can't learn through business books.


"We want candid, real life experience — which to most of our attendees is going to be the most valuable insight you can get," said Kurt McSparron, the initiative's founder.

What to read next
Printz writes, "It’s supremely comfortable and roomy, yet cozy; feeling as if it was tailored specifically for you and lavishly finished in the finest materials. There’s room for two up front and theoretically two in back. But the rear seat is better suited as a padded parcel shelf; this baby has a mere 3.4 cubic feet of trunk space."
Building permits recently filed in Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo
