“Minnedemo is one of the best events in the TC startup community. If you want to learn, show off or grow your network, that’s the event to be at. Especially if you are new to the community, it might be the best event to throw yourself into.” – Alex Rodriguez


On Thursday, October 12th during Twin Cities Startup Week, 735 techies, designers, investors and entrepreneurs descended on the Riverview Theater in South Minneapolis to attend Minnedemo27. Minnedemo, held three times a year, is the premier showcase for working technology products and tech innovation in Minnesota. Stay tuned for an announcement about our next Minnedemo in February!

The formula for our ‘geek show and tell’ is simple: 7 presenters, 7 minutes each, live demos of working tech made in MN. This time around we were proud to highlight these 7 incredible groups (you can check out more information about them HERE):

Minnedemo27 fast facts:

  • 47% of the attendees were attending their very first Minnestar event
  • 88% of the demos were led by women and/or people of color
  • 86% of survey respondents would recommend Minnedemo to a friend or colleague

We are always looking to improve the quality and experience of our events, so we want to know: what would you like to see from Minnestar? What is your vision for our tech community and how can Minnestar help us get there? Shoot us an email any time (we love hearing from you!) at support@minnestar.org.

See you in February!
