In this episode of Top of Mind, Thom Ruhe sits down with Silicon Prairie News co-founder Jeff Slobotski. Silicon Prairie News is a digital media company that is dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs, creatives, and investors in and around Omaha, Des Moines and Kansas City.

Jeff shares how the idea for the digital media source was created and how the company has grown since it was founded in 2008. The goal of Silicon Prairie News is to share the often un-told stories of entrepreneurs and their start-ups with the purpose of connecting entrepreneurial communities. Jeff explains that, rather than solely focusing on things like revenue, growth, or financing, the news outlet strives to report on the more personal and social side of companies, founders, and community leaders.
