In this interview, Minnesota Cup co founder Scott Litman and Director Matt Hilker join us to discuss the 8th annual statewide business plan competition that seeks out aspiring entrepreneurs and their breakthrough ideas.
It begins again this Monday, March 26th, and the initial application window runs through May 18th, before 10 semifinalists are chosen to advance to the next round. Hundreds of local tech entrepreneurs have participated over the years, gaining validation, recognition, services and cash — with between $5,000 – $40,000 now at stake.
The High Tech division is seeking entries in software and hardware (Web-based software, Web 2.0, etc.), networking, communications and wireless equipment and products. We also are looking for submissions in the innovative development and/or delivery of technology services, including consulting services, service providers and software as a service.
Tune in to hear all the new developments, learn how the application process works, and what the number one piece of advice from Scott Litman is. Good luck out there!
