Local Business Outlook
As a supercommunity bank, we take our commitment to the success of our communities seriously. Starion Financial reached out to local Chambers of Commerce and prominent institutions of higher learning that share our values in order to participate in an annual recap and projection for the local business climate.
Currently these efforts are active in North Dakota’s capital city of Bismarck and North Dakota’s largest city of Fargo. We distribute a survey to area business owners asking them to assess factors that impacted their business in the prior year and speculate on what they expect in the coming year. In subsequent years, we compare these businesses’ expectations against the actual outcomes. Local market leadership analyzes all of this data to comprise the summaries they present at their local business and economic outlook events.
In the spirit of helping your business be as successful as possible, these presentations are available for you at all times here on our website. We encourage you to participate year after year by completing your survey when you receive it. Together we make our communities great.
