2011 Minnesota Cup High Tech Division Semifinalists – Who Made the Cut?

2011-Minnesota-CupMinnesota Cup judges have just revealed their ten selections for this years high tech semifinalists, amongst four other divisions.

Upon reviewing the list, there’s no question this division is hyper-competitive as ever! Some ventures are familiar (even returning), while others are totally fresh.

The semifinalists will be matched with mentors and final plans will be submitted on/before 11:59 pm July 22nd; the list is then further trimmed to three finalists chosen on August 16th (notified by the 19th).  Ultimately, ten minute live pitches will be given to the review board and one high tech division winner will be crowned on August 30th.

$25k is at stake for the division winner including a variety of supporting services and an unquantifiable amount of credibility + recognition. Division winners also proceed to compete against the five other divisions on September 8th for an additional $25k as part of the grand prize.  Congratulations and good luck all!
