Livefront has been a longtime champion of BETA and the Minnesota startup ecosystem.
The BETA Group (BETA) is proud to welcome Minneapolis-based digital product agency Livefront as a Presenting Partner for 2023. A longtime supporter of BETA and Minnesota’s startup ecosystem, Livefront will present BETA Bridge, a program that connects founders to local corporate leaders through industry-specific roundtable discussions. The Partnership announcement comes as BETA opens applications for the first of four events this year—March 23’s Marketing Tech-focused roundtable.
"At Livefront, we are passionate about raising the visibility of Minnesota's growing technology scene, and we're thrilled to continue our partnership with BETA and the Bridge program," Livefront CEO Mike Bollinger said. "Through BETA Bridge, we've seen first-hand numerous tangible, positive outcomes for both emerging startups and established corporations who participate in the program."
The BETA Bridge program is specifically designed to be a bridge between key figures in Minnesota’s startup ecosystem including founders, corporate leaders, educators, investors, and government officials. Thanks to the support of Livefront, BETA gathers those key figures each quarter for intentional and productive discussion on a main topic, helping form a more connected community in the process. Now in its sixth year, the program continues to build meaningful and fruitful relationships that see founders and corporations alike grow and more clearly understand one another.
“Collaboration is a fundamental theme for our organization as we work on behalf of Minnesota’s founders,” BETA Executive Director Shelisa Demuth said. “This program has ignited partnerships between technology founders and local corporations that continue to expand the ecosystem. We’re thrilled to partner with Livefront to see it continue.”
Applications for BETA Bridge are currently open with a deadline of Thursday, March 2. More information on founder qualifications and the kinds of corporate leaders who are a good fit for the program can be found here.
