What’s going on:
Launch Minnesota, an initiative headed by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), is joining forces with coworking spaces and economic development organizations statewide in a pioneering effort to foster beneficial connections between local experts and startups and small businesses at every stage of growth.
Every second Wednesday of the month, local businesses will have a chance to showcase the wide array of resources offered to the community.
An array of experts, such as business coaches, Launch Minnesota regional leaders, support organizations and consultants from Small Business Development Centers, will be available at each location.
Why it matters:
This new opportunity gives startups, small businesses and experts in the community the ability to come together and further benefit the business community.
How it’ll impact the future:
“These events will increase access to Minnesota’s many educational, non-profit, government and other innovation resources and make it easier for entrepreneurs and business owners to connect to talent across Minnesota to help their business start and scale,” said Neela Mollgaard, Executive Director at Launch Minnesota.
