Thank You Silicon Prairie Online for reinvesting!

What does Silicon Prairie do?

Silicon Prairie Online helps entrepreneurs and their companies raise capital though regulated crowdfunding

When/why/how did Silicon Prairie?

Silicon Prairie started in 2016 after the MNvest legislation became effective as “right place/right time” reaction to a confluence of distributed ledger technology (aka blockchain) maturity and a democratization of capital flows.

What is unique about the company?

The founder (David Duccini) has advanced degree’s in both software and business — a unique perspective that traces from “what’s possible” to “what’s probable” and the path between the two. The company is laser focused on automation as a means to scalability, reduced friction and costs in all phases of a capital raise.

Why sponsor TECHdotMN?

Our company name was selected to celebrate the innovation that happens right here in Minnesota — the “silicon prairie” starts with Minnesota and encompasses the “mid-west” down to Texas. TECHdotMN shares the vision that what happens here is worth celebrating AND taking credit for our contributions.

How could Minnesota’s tech industry improve from your perspective?

We need to demonstrate that risk-taking can be worth it — that it can be done safely and without fear of censor — failure is going to happen and we should embrace it. We need to make it safe to start new ventures — too many potentially great entrepreneurs seem to have been lulled into a false sense of security by a high-paying job in a fortune 500 company.
