Spotlight Media at One Million Cups

Spotlight Media at One Million Cups

Today at One Million Cups at The Stage at Island Park, Spotlight Media representatives laid out over 200 copies of the latest Fargo Monthly on the seats for attendees. One Million Cups is an Emerging Prairie event that allows local entrepreneurs to present their startup to a large group of innovators. This event happens every Wednesday from 9am to 10 am at venues around the country.

This week One Million Cups Fargo explored the startup c2renew, which has created a coffee cup made out of used coffee beans. The group specializes in finding alternatives to petroleum-based plastics. They use biocomposite materials in order to create a green alternative to traditional petroleum-based plastic, as well as avoiding the unstable oil market. C2renew is based out of Colfax, North Dakota.

Spotlight Media traveled to Minneapolis last week to attend the Minnesota Magazine Publishing Association’s Excellence Awards. The company was awarded with a gold award in the feature article category for the March 2014 article “Fargo-Moorhead is an Emerging Prairie.”

The article showcased the growing number of entrepreneurs and start-ups popping up across Fargo-Moorhead. Showcased in the article were start-ups like DogIDs, Myriad Mobile, Beach Interactive, Fargo 3D Printing and Office Sign Company, as well as the digital-media company, Emerging Prairie.

“We are especially proud that this award continues to spread the news about what’s happening in the Fargo-Moorhead area,” said Mike Dragosavich, Owner of Spotlight Media. “I hope that we can continue to showcase our great community. As we go into 2015, Fargo Monthly will be more heavily dedicated to entrepreneurs, start-ups and business in general.”

According to their website, the Minnesota Magazine Publishing Association is a group of magazine professionals dedicated to the growing number of Minnesota publications. The 18th annual Excellence Awards received 608 entries, with 87 judges selecting the finalists.
