Near a year ago the New York based company InfoTech moved here, and so far it seems to be a success. Senator Byron Dorgan helps secure a 1.8 million dollar grant to get a New York based information technology company called InfoTech to Minot.

Minot State University in partnership with InfoTech Minot Technology Center at SRT communications in the Minot Area Development Corporation has submitted a Center of Excellence proposal to support the Great Plains Knowledge Data Center.
