Project Skyway emerges as the vision for an ‘Innovation Center’ in Minnesota. GTK #23: Cem Erdem


“I looked around at all the models and unfortunately we are behind the curve when it comes to early stage investment of time, capital and resources,” says  Cem Erdem, President and CEO of Minneapolis-based Augusoft.

As a Turkish immigrant, Cem started Augusoft 16 years ago to provide Internet strategy consulting at a time when the Internet was still nascent at best. Over the years, Augusoft has become a “highly profitable” software development firm specializing in a learning management system called Lumens.
