Startup School Minnesota returns

by The TECHdotMN Team


What do Julie Gilbert-Newrai, Clay Collins, Aaron Kardell, Chad Halvorson, Justin Kaufenberg, and Chip Pearson have in common? They are Minnesota tech entrepreneurs making it happen and they are giving back on May 23rd when Startup School Minnesota comes to CoCo Uptown.

This peer to peer educational event is based on the success of last years inaugural event and is modeled after the annual Y Combinator / Stanford gathering. It’s taught by entrepreneurs who are leading by example and designed for entrepreneurs who want to start or already already in pursuit of their own venture.  Prepare to learn, be inspired, share knowledge and expand your network.

The format will be 15/15/15: a 15 minute thematic overview followed by 15 minutes Q&A with 15 minutes of group networking for each speaker. We’ll squeeze in a few lightening rounds (5min) by those in the early trenches. There is also an opportunity for 10 tech startups to pitch the peer audience (<90 seconds) for both live realtime feedback and addition to anonymous post-pitch feedback.  The pay what you want ticket proceeds benefit BRIDGEdotMN; lunch and beverages are included.
