About the Meetup

Meet other entrepreneurs and independent product developers.   Bring your questions and "group-source" the answers.  Hear from specialized experts willing to share their insights.  Get energized and stay motivated to pursue your goals.  Relax and have a beer and interesting conversations.  Participants have found clients and collaborators through this Meetup.

Software, electronics, life sciences, med tech, services, products, materials, designs--innovators of a wide variety of value propositions participate. Both for-profit and non-profit entrepreneurs participate.  Many are starting their second or third business.  A partner in McKinsey & Company (NYC) turned up one evening. We have enjoyed meeting people from China, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Italy, India, Bangladesh and other countries.  Many are newcomers to Minneapolis/St. Paul.  Multi-generational, our age range has been 20 to 70+.  Several investors make periodic visits for those of you looking for capital.

RSVPs on the Meetup website don't include participants from our hosts personal email list and LinkedIn groups.  Many regulars just show up.  We don't cancel a meeting due to low RSVPs on Meetup.  Our largest attendance was about 20 people, but I've enjoyed smaller groups where I get to hear more from each person.

Let the host know what kind of expert you would like to have at a future meeting and feel free to refer speakers.  We look for speakers who have a message that is broader than, "buy my product or service".

The college has a parking ramp connected to the Technical Building where we meet by skyway over Hennepin Avenue.

    What is parking like near this location??

    March 4, 2013

    • Ebrima J.

      Lithami, since it's evening, parking is pretty accessible. You can use the street to park. The Meters on the streets expire at 6pm and you only pay a quarter for every 30 mins.

      Be sure to check the Snow Emergency Parking Rules for Minneapolis. This is the second day of the snow emergency (http://www.minneapoli...­). The MCTC parking ramp is $5 any time of the day and has plenty of room. I would park there to save the hassle. Also, it is connected to MCTC by Skyway.

    If you need cash to get your business or innovation off the ground, this will be a great introduction to angel investors.
