Weaving Big Connections from Small Acts
Greg Tehven thought he needed to leave his home state of North Dakota to have a meaningful life. But when he went to college, he discovered the art of applying small town values to a university setting. This began a trajectory of service - Pay it Forward Tours with college students; Students Today, Leaders Forever; world travel; and ultimately a return to North Dakota where he co-founded Emerging Prairie, a startup news and events organization. Greg is the curator of TEDx Fargo and hosts 1 Million Cups , an organization that supports entrepreneurs. He is an adjunct professor at North Dakota State University's College of Business. He is a husband and a new father. Gregs path demonstrates that small acts in smallish communities create big connections. His story reminds us, that in service, there is no such thing as small.
