Lunar Startups Lunch & Learn

  • Wilder Foundation 451 Lexington Parkway North Saint Paul, MN, 55104 United States (map)

Lunar Startups, a collaborative space and experience for high growth entrepreneurs. This new program of the Glen Nelson Center at American Public Media is powered by the Knight Foundation.

Lunar Startups is open to everyone who is an ally, advocate, and champion for all entrepreneurs. A strong focus of our program is on women, people of color, and others who may feel marginalized in the current startup community. We have intentionally and thoughtfully designed Lunar Startups in collaboration with a highly diverse group of potential partners and members.

We are seeking 5-7 startups who are ready to scale their business and need support reaching new milestones. The program is not verticle specific but will primarily target tech startups.

Join us at Wilder Foundation in St. Paul to learn more about the criteria, how to apply and our process for selecting startups.

Our program provides several benefits for entrepreneurs including:

  • Dedicated office space for you and your team
  • Access to state of the art equipment for video conferencing, podcast development, etc.
  • Startup-specific programming that is determined by the cohort
  • Stewardship and peer mentorship
  • Team development
  • Regular media and promotional visibility
  • Conference rooms
  • Mail room and printing services
  • Coffee, tea and full kitchen
  • An inclusive community dedicated to seeing you succeed
