Help Technology in Minnesota Thrive

Minnestar is a 501c3 nonprofit, run by an all-volunteer board and a single paid staff member. We’re committed to providing high-quality, free events for anyone who considers themself a technology enthusiast. Through events, knowledge is exchanged, ideas are shared, relationships are built, and the entire ecosystem gets a boost.

YOU are the heart and soul of our community. Please help us by making a tax-deductible donation.

We will recognize your contribution with:

  • Priority registration for our events for a year (if you contribute $100 or more)
  • Recognition on our website and at events
  • Ability to help us “beta test” new ideas and new events
  • Warm fuzzies knowing you’re helping to sustain and equip the Minnesota tech community long into the future

Minnestar is one of the first groups I recommend to people new to the area or to tech. Presenting at Minnedemo and having an entire room of friends applauding my work is a highlight of my career. Minnebar is a great conference for catching up on what people are building, and a great, low-pressure way to talk about the technology I love.
