Minnesota has a strong history of funding start-up technology companies and nurturing these companies through their lifecycle.  In order for the local tech community to flourish, the funding and ongoing support of these start-up companies must be maintained. Our business is enhanced by continuing to understand the technology industry and how different changes may affect tax compliance on a federal, state, or international level, along with using financial statements as a tool for future lending.
