Twin Cities: The startup capital of the “North”


A recent WSJ article titled “Minnesota’s New Cool Image as ‘the North” has stoked the discussions around declaring a new “North” region of the US and the Twin Cities serving as its “capital”. While this discussion is fascinating in and of itself, how would this change specifically affect the local startup community?

Join Carson Kipfer (Co-Founder & Chief Evangelist @ SportNgin), Eric Dayton (Co-Founder of The Bachelor Farmer & Askov Finlayson), and Ryan Broshar (Founder & Managing Partner @ Matchstick Ventures) as we discuss the effects of moving out of the shadow of Chicago and the Midwest and into a the new “North” frontier.
