The Mandan Pitch Challenge brought in entrepreneurs from all over North Dakota to explain why they should be the newest business in town. Nordic Steel Systems, a new manufacturing business, took home the $10,000 forgivable loan first prize.
Nordic Steel Systems not only saves builders time, but also gives consumers a more efficient product. Their biggest selling point how long the material lasts.
Their product doesn’t only reduce financial cost but reduces framing labor cost by 30% or more,
reduces completion time by 30% or more, and reduces landfill waste by 40% or more.
One judge said it was that fact alone, that has them ready to welcome in the new company
“That business in particular has the most potential as far as scalability. That’s to be determined on how successful they are but that ultimately has the biggest impact for the city of Mandan,” say judge Blake Feil owner of Feil Orthodontics.
