The North is different – it’s a place where ideas are nurtured, community is valued, opportunities are created, and problems aren’t just discussed – they’re worked on – and solved. See for yourself.
Minneapolis-Saint Paul is the startup capital of the North. Our entrepreneurial community is growing by leaps and bounds. But what’s on the horizon?
Our ambition is to make this region the best place for people from every background to start & scale ventures that create wealth by solving global challenges. But where do we start?
Today, we’re establishing a bold set of 3-year goals. Many issues matter. In fact, we will soon publish the new MSP Innovation Dashboard that tracks 20 key indicators critical to the health and vibrancy of our startup ecosystem.
But to set some priorities, the Forge North Leadership Council has been engaging the region’s diverse ecosystem of entrepreneurs, investors, enterprise innovators, and community builders. More than 500 people shared their insight in late 2019 via surveys, focus groups, and in-person events. The council worked to consolidate all these ideas and focus on the three areas with the greatest interest from across the ecosystem.
