By Neal St. Anthony, Star Tribune

75F is one fairly hot small business based in often-chilly Minnesota. Founder Deepinder Singh, a software engineer by training, started brainstorming 75F a decade ago after he was frustrated with his efforts to control the temperature in the baby’s room of his drafty Mankato house.

Q&A With Osborn370 Owners On Their Forthcoming ‘Tech Hub’ In St. Paul

sourced

“This is not your father’s office…because you can’t have lightbulb moments under flourescent lighting,” says Osborn370 — the new name for an old building re-opening in downtown St. Paul this fall.

Purchased from Ecolab on July 1 by a group of investors including local angel John Bergstrom and repeat tech entrepreneur Scott Burns, the 20 story edifice bills itself as a “Perfect for start-ups, freelancers and companies of all sizes and sorts.”

So we connected with Bergstrom and Burns to hear more, in their own words, just what’s in store…

Osborn 370 will be a multi-tenant building that caters to growth and innovation companies. We already know that several high-growth technology companies will be located in Osborn 370 by the end of 2017.
