Find this podcast on AppleGoogle, and Spotify.

On Episode 11 Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital and Jac Stark, community manager of Tech.MN welcome Matt Lewis, Vice President, Strategic Initiatives of Greater MSP, on The Tech.MN Podcast to talk all about the assets and liabilities of the great state of Minnesota.

Matt shares his story of what led him to Greater MSP. After starting off as a journalist in Washington DC he made his way back to Minnesota with an interest in helping separate organizations collaborate. We dive into the workings of Greater MSP including two of their initiatives, Make It MSP and Forge North.

The conversation touches on the infamous Amazon Proposal for HQ2 and the job of selling Minnesota beyond nostalgia. We get an inside look into the development of the Forge North Council and what it takes to bring together many different players to benefit the whole.

Hype Time
Every episode we ask our guest to name drop someone doing cool things in the tech community. Kevin also asks Matt to name a corporation that is stepping up in the region. Matt gives a shout out to Caroline Karanja of 26 Letters, and CH Robinson.
