The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) announced the formation of the Launch Minnesota Network, a statewide partnership to advance Minnesota’s innovation ecosystem.
A team of Forge North partners are working together to represent the Twin Cities Regional Hub, including BETA, FINNOVATION Lab, Lunar Startups, Social Impact Strategies Group, The Coven, Minnestar, The Riveter, University Enterprise Laboratories (UEL) and Startup Space. And better yet, this group will work along with the incredible team at MEDA, also working to represent the Twin Cities Region.
A grant from Launch Minnesota will be distributed to several of these partners to improve coordination and capacity throughout the region. We look forward to serving entrepreneurs here in the region and to new collaboration with other regions of the state through the Launch Minnesota Network.
UEL is proud to be partnering with these exceptional organizations and this initiative to enhance support of Minnesota’s innovation ecosystem.
