Enterprise-focused startups need the support of large companies to be successful—no question. Our large enterprises also need startups and the creativity, agility, and grit that comes with them. Minnesota can be better with enterprises and startups helping each other.
Only some entrepreneurs start companies. You can help build Minnesota's future by doing something as simple as grabbing a cup of coffee with a startup founder, talking to them about your company's challenges, and sharing ideas for solving them.
Three key elements of Minnesota's culture are intelligence, practicality, and helpfulness. Our culture is the foundation that will allow us to build sophisticated enterprise companies that rival the very best in the world.
Technology, used well, is a powerful platform for growth and change. Minnesota's enterprise companies and startups can both use their technical expertise to solve problems more effectively and set the stage for future innovation.
