What we're about
Are you an entrepreneur or are you an aspiring entrepreneur? Entrepreneurs are determined to face adversity even when their friends and family are discouraging about their passion.
It takes courage for an entrepreneur to come to a meetup when you don't know anyone. This group is so warm and friendly to every new person that has the passion to show up. You get charged up 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, we are here to support you.
Minnesota Entrepreneurs (MnE) provides an environment for entrepreneurs to discover a supportive community of like minded business people who are passionate about "giving" from their own entrepreneurial experiences. 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.
The meetings are about an individual member's presentation of hers/his unique experiences that reflect on the tenacity and drive that is the core element that keep entrepreneurs growing towards their passion to succeed. Every attendee is entitled to a 20 second elevator pitch introduction.
The majority of the meeting is spent in an interactive exchange with other attending members sharing referrals, information, and resources.
Several meetups are held every week between St. Paul and Minneapolis for the opportunity of the total community to be served.
MnE has a series of 12 monthly incubator style Lunch 'n Learns every Mon, Tues, & Wed all on different topics. We collaborate with 15 other meetup groups so we have aggregated a community of more than 25,000 meetup members who observe and contribute to the success of our local community.
