This is a podcast for tech and entrepreneurship in Minnesota. Casey Shultz, Executive Director of BETA, and Shacarria Scott, Sales and Relationship Manager of BETA, set out to tell the stories of the individuals that make up the Minnesota tech and startup capital of the North. Join us every Tuesday as we interview people from across the ecosystem about their journeys.
