Meet A Minnesota CTO: Mike Phenow, LinkUp



Mike PhenowThank you Andcor Companies or underwriting the Meet a Minnesota CTO series.

Mike Phenow is the CTO of LinkUp, an employment, media, and advertising technology firm now found in Minneapolis’ Warehouse District.

How long have you been working in technology for and what is your technical background?

I received a BA in computer science from Saint John’s University a little over 10 years ago and have been working in technology ever since.

My career has taken me down several paths including working for a national laboratory and a couple local web shops. I also spent some time as a freelance web developer and working on my own start-up projects. In the fall of 2011 I started working for LinkUp as a senior developer and moved into my current role as the CTO a year later.
