A city in Cass County of North Dakota, Fargo has a big population of about 122,359 folk meandering around its streets, sipping coffee in cafes and getting busy in coworking venues. Founded in 1871 on the Red River, the city is the cultural, retail, educational and industrial center for the eastern region of North Dakota and northwestern area of Minnesota. Home to the North Dakota State University, the city has a vibrant and youthful vibe that explodes in the Fargodome, an indoor stadium that hosts college football games, concerts and theatrical shows. You can have a chat to a red panda or a gray wolf in the Red River Zoo or check out the regional and contemporary artworks in the Plains Art Museum, if you are of the arty persuasion.
Fargo is being touted as America's most undervalued tech hub where there is a robust startup community comprised of students, business leaders, investors and entrepreneurs. It's home to the country's 3rd largest Microsoft campus with nearly 30,000 college students running amok and the startup news and event organization "Emerging Prairie" that co-organizes events such as 1 Million Cups, TEDxFargo and a monthly gathering named "Startup Drinks". The city hosts the annual Midwest Mobile Summit and numerous meetups have been launched for hackers, developers, geeks, gamers and bitcoin junkies. The community of Fargo has an inclusive culture with a magnetic downtown area that is attracting and retaining its talent.
Considering that the average age of Fargo residents is 31 and its unemployment level is the lowest in the nation, it's no wonder that coworking venues are bursting at the seams with tech savvy souls intent on making their dreams a reality.
