In an earlier post, I raised the question of “Who are Minnesota’s Radical Tech CEOs?”  In it, I proposed that if we want Minnesota to become a (top 5) hub for tech innovation with quality jobs, we need business leaders who get the connection between business, people and place.

I’m happy to report that our first Radical CEO is Matthew Dornquast of Code 42 Software.

Mr. Dornquast has built a formidable Minnesota tech company with rapid growth in the midst of a major economic downturn. Furthermore, he has an express commitment to the Minnesota tech ecosystem – a commitment consistently demonstrated by his actions within the Minnesota tech ecosystem.  In this sense, Matthew Dornquast is a radicalist with true community vision.
