The scoop on Startup School Minnesota


StartupSchoolMNThe inaugural Startup School Minnesota is ON tomorrow in collaboration with Minne* at the Brave New Workshop, downtown Minneapolis.  If you’re an aspiring, emerging or practicing tech entrepreneur — this will be a most relevant and insightful event to be a part of.

There’s currently 90 registered, with room for 10 more. Here’s what’s going on:

Up first is Matthew Dornquast (9am), Code 42 Software co founder and CEO, who will speak to “Lessons learned – 10 principals from 10 years.” If you’re not familiar with the Code 42 story

Following Dornquast is the O’Reilly author, CTO, and co founder of Enstratius which was acquired by Dell in May. George Reese‘s talk (10am) is titled: “”No Seat Belts Allowed: The Roller Coaster Ride of Entrepreneurship”.

Minnesota startup junkie Doug Berg will take the stage (11am) to talk about a topic that he hasn’t exactly been able to define.  Considering he’s lived through the .com bust and sold his last software company for $100m+, surely it will be interesting whatever it is.

After lunch (12pm), we added four lightening talks (1pm)!

After the lightening talks, we’ve got Sport Ngin co founder and CEO Justin Kaufenberg (2pm) on “Raising your first round.”

Serial tech entrepreneur Chris Heim is a guy who has been around the block more than once. He’ll be addressing (3pm) the process of “Exits: from start to finish”.

Lastly (4pm), you’ll be charged and challenged by the energy of JAMF Software managing partner Chip Pearson.  He will address what is arguably one of the most critical elements of starting a tech company (or doing anything for that matter) – “Motivation”.

And after that, anything is possible.
