More Minnesota Tech Startups And Execs Join MESA’s Mentoring Network

Minnesota’s Emerging Software Association – MESA – has added more startups and mentors to their roster over the last quarter.

MESA was originally formed by a small group of local tech execs who wanted to spark a movement to make Minnesota’s software industry among the most vibrant in the nation by providing a no/low cost mentoring model that enables other around them to give back to emerging tech entrepreneurs.

Since beginning in 2011, MESA has accumulated 27 active mentors and 20 mentees, while 21 companies have already graduated from their program. In adding up their cumulative experience and value-add to entrepreneurs over the years – MESA clearly earns Minnesota tech’s top spot in terms of the type of organized and scaled impact they set out to make at the onset.

“We are going to continue growing further this year,” says founding member and mentor Jim Moar.
