Neela Mollgaard, Executive Director of Launch MN, joins The Podcast to chat about Launch MN and connecting Minnesota’s Innovation Ecosystem.

We discuss the mission of Launch MN is to help innovation take off in Minnesota, bringing people together to affect change, her experience with Redwing Ignite and reaching outside of our bubble to make our community better (#wearestrongertogether). 

Neela explains Launch MN’s goal to provide opportunity, access, and exposure to companies and ecosystem builders, gives a tentative timeline of what is to come, and chats about some possible grants that they are considering.
