An entrepreneurial spirit is not something that can be taught - it has to be developed within oneself. An entrepreneurial mindset is one that continually embraces change, invites ardent questioning, and creates a constant striving for improvement. November is National Entrepreneurship Month, which celebrates our country's entrepreneurs who lead the way forward, by creating jobs, spurring growth, and forging ahead with innovation.

When it comes to choosing the right location for starting a  business venture or putting in place a new enterprise, entrepreneurs always look for the “perfect blend” of human and natural resources. Although the basics, like population, location advantage, human capital, and availability of resources are important, business owners and founders always look to see if the locality resonates with just the right sensibility. Todd County in the state of Minnesota is just that kind of place. Here, you can truly make a difference.

At the heart of Central Minnesota: incredibly connected
