Updated: Launch.MN Event Postponed in Anticipation of ‘Bigger Announcements’

LAUNCHdotMNAs I’ve said before, Minnesota is behind in early stage technology adoption,” reiterates Project Skyway mastermind Cem Erdem in a recent interview.

Thus the impetus for Launch.MN, a newly formed nonprofit spearheaded by Erdem and led by John Montague and Jeffrey Miller that will commence April 2nd at the IMS Building — where it’s anticipated that 300-500 people will conjugate for an all day Minnesota tech extravaganza.

“The goal is to increase tech entrepreneurship in our region through unity and collaboration,” he says.

The April 2 kickoff event is more of a coming out party, whereas the bigger vision for Launch.MN includes a large physical space in Minneapolis, as well as the intention of collecting money from foundations, grants, private enterprise and local investors — which in turn — can be disseminated to those groups in the community which are actively supporting tech entrepreneurs, according to Erdem.
