In a way, networking and building community in the digital age is easier than a generation ago. A new connection in your field of work is sometimes just a Facebook click away. But there is more to building community, business relationships and innovation than just social media. This is where the group Pollen comes in. The non-profit is based in Minnesota and the Dakotas. Pollen is attempting to build cross community networks and relationships that spur new ideas and possibilities in the three-state region. Pollen won a grant from the Bush Foundation and a couple of their representatives visited with SDPB's Charles Michael Ray during a visit to Rapid City.
