The State of Startups At Minnebar

by The TECHdotMN Team


On Saturday we’re hosting a Minnebar session called “The State of Startups” that will examine the early stage tech scene in Minnesota.

Joining us will be Ryan Broshar and Patrick Meenan, two early stage investors active in Minnesota and beyond. Rob Weber and Daren Cotter are homegrown tech entrepreneurs leading multi-million dollar opertions and reinvesting cash into local startups.

Together — our goals are: introduce data that educates, discuss the realities of entrepreneurship & investing, and to stimulate adult conversations that evolve the startup culture here in Minnesota.  No question, topic, or comment is off limits; consider going into this session:

Who are the makers vs. the takers?

What are our strengths and weaknesses?

Where is the action happening?

Why are we mediocre?

How can we be better?
