Innovative new program aims to give entrepreneurs a leg up.
When it comes to spurring innovation and entrepreneurship, Minnesota leaves nothing to chance.
The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) has rolled out the welcome mat for entrepreneurs and venture capital investors through Launch Minnesota (LM), which took flight on Oct. 1, 2019.
According to DEED, “Launch Minnesota supports a series of new initiatives designed to accelerate the growth of high-technology companies. The initiative is designed to lower the risk required to fund, start or grow technology businesses in Minnesota. LM brings all of these initiatives together under a new office that acts as a touchstone for the state to support and enhance our visibility and interest in the innovation ecosystem.”
