On June 5, 2012, the South Dakota Prairie Gateway (www.SDPrairieGateway.org) was formally launched at a regional economic development conference held in Aberdeen, South Dakota (see attached group photo of partners). SD Prairie Gateway is a regional web-based portal for economic development information in Northeast South Dakota. Whether you are a site selector looking to locate in one of our communities or a local business in search of training opportunities and resources, this great new resource is for you. This project will pool resources and, in turn, build the strength of the region through the web-site, social media management, web-based training opportunities, and the development of a technology infrastructure for attracting new and expanding businesses to rural South Dakota.
