The Rochester Entrepreneur Network (REN) was incubated by a small group of local entrepreneurs and advocates, led by Jamie Sundsbak and David Hewitt, who strongly believe in a robust startup ecosystem. As a means to bring together local inventors and entrepreneurs. The purpose of the events posted on REN are to offer business geeks and creators the ability to receive encouragement, learning, and networking. The vision of REN is to cultivate creative thinking and passion, into viable, economically enhancing products and businesses that people get excited about. RENs members will work to push Southeast Minnesota as the leading incubator for new, viable products and businesses. REN is a public network open to any one aspiring to cultivate their ideas. REN events are typically hosted or sponsored by Cube.mn, BioAm.org, Cafe Steam, Mayo Business Accelerator and the University of Minnesota Rochester. Hope to see you soon, keep rocking.
