Are you an entrepreneur or are you aspiring entrepreneur? Entrepreneurs are determined to face adversity even when friends and family are discouraging about your passion.
It takes courage for an entrepreneur to come to these 7:30 am meet ups when you don't know anyone. This group is so warm and friendly to every new person that has the passion to show up and gain from the support of everyone in the group who care about you and encourage you to continue to drive forward in the face of doubt as you seek your goal of being self sufficient and a good provider to the people around you.
MnE provides an environment for entrepreneurs in Minnesota to discover a supportive community of like minded business people who are passionate about "giving" from their own entrepreneurial ambitions. Members support each other incubating the entrepreneurial ideals to fruition.
Everyone is welcome to join the group if you fit in one or more of the following four categories:
* Aspiring Entrepreneurs
We do not have any membership dues or revenue criteria. Whether you own a company or just want to help other people succeed, MnE provides the encouragement you seek to inspire your passion.
