We are a passionate group of technology enthusiasts on a mission to serve Minnesota’s tech ecosystem and the startups within it. Through a mix of unique audio / video features and written word, we create original Minnesota tech news and curate relevant local news from outside sources. When combined with Minnesota’s most comprehensive calendar of tech/entrepreneur events, the deepest database of Minnesota tech companies and industry employment opportunities — the result is an exhaustive resource for those who care about what’s happening in Minnesota’s startup community on a regular basis.
TECHdotMN is a for-profit social venture, whereas a percentage of gross revenues are donated to initiatives that aim to bridge the urban digital divide in Minnesota through BRIDGEdotMN.
Success is measured to the degree by which we (a) increase awareness and visibility about what’s happening in Minnesota’s tech startup community, (b) foster efficient & quality relationships amongst like-minded individuals, and (c) deliver actionable data, insights and intelligence designed to arm the entrepreneur and decision maker alike.
We look forward to connecting with anyone genuinely interested in supporting the advancement of tech startups within Minnesota. Ideas, propositions, feedback, tips, etc., are always welcome —off the record unless otherwise mutually agreed upon.
As TECHdotMN continues to evolve, tell us how we can be of greater value.
A passionately committed group of technology enthusiasts with complimentary interests, experience and domain knowledge.
