Midwestern Startups: What is Possible?

URL: http://luke.francl.org, http://alttext.com/,

What does it mean to create a startup in the Midwest? Is it possible, or should we all just move to Silicon Valley? What kind of companies can succeed here? How do you fund a startup in this region? What can we do to promote tech startups in the Twin Cities?

These are some of the questions I’d like to discuss, along with other people who’ve started their own companies, or are trying to get going.

Ben and I would also like to talk about some ideas for MinneStart and what we could do to encourage more startups here.
