EnterpriseRising Conference Launches for B2B Startups


Enterprise Rising

A new conference for software startups is launching next month called EnterpriseRising, considered to be Minnesota’s first tech conference of the sort.
Held on March 6th at the Westin Edina Galleria, the full day gathering is organized by former Project Skyway / Skyway Fund cofounder fund Casey Allen.

“Minnesota’s startup ecosystem is uniquely good at a number of things, and often times we need to be reminded of that,” Allen says of the event genesis.  “The goal is to highlight and celebrate the fact that we have produced, and will continue to produce, fantastic enterprise software companies.”

Foundry Group Partner Seth Levine will provide the opening keynote to share what his firm is investing around enterprise. At least nine other speakers, each versed in their own experiences of B2B software, will share their knowledge and advice with attendees.

Two tracks will form, “hustle” and “scale”, differentiated by phase of company; a demo session will feature five enterprise startups, with adequate time for networking and adult beverages.

Tickets start at $79 (techdotmnlove=40% off), good until March 1.  Allen says it’s the “first of several tech conferences Minnesota needs to have,” hinting at more to come.
