What we're about

Entrepreneurship permeates the culture of Silicon Valley - the innovation capital of the world.

The advent of the Digital Age has democratized innovation and entrepreneurship that exists in Minnesota.

Never before has it been more possible for anyone from anywhere, with a great idea and a burning desire to succeed, to make it big, and in the process, change the world in a relatively short period of time.

HP, Intel, Apple, Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Yahoo, eBay, Amazon, Google, Facebook and many, many, many other iconic companies all started with just an idea.

Taking a startup from idea to a real company has taken on mythical proportions that are achievable. Many dream the dream, with hopes of launching the "next big thing".

We are a community of entrepreneurs, technologists, engineers, venture capitalists, angel investors, educators, financial professionals, corporate executives, attorneys, academics, bloggers, writers, content creators, and social activists.

Our mission is to provide entrepreneurs with the knowledge, guidance, tools, and connections they need to succeed. Our goal is to build a strong, vibrant, collaborative entrepreneurial community with deep, lasting business and social relationships.
