Dear Minnestar community,

This has been an incredible year of growth for both the organization and the Minnesota tech community. Thanks to all of you who made it such a success!

Some highlights from 2019:

Did you have a favorite Minnebar session? Miss one of the Minnedemos? You can relive all of the great moments with recordings from each on our YouTube channel.

Since 2006, we’ve been working hard to ensure Minnestar fosters a community where everyone who is a self-identified tech-enthusiast can build meaningful connections, and find a place to plug in. While today’s landscape means there are myriad tech organizations, meetups, showcases and other tech-related events and activities, Minnestar is and will always be the community that represents everyone. We love to support and showcase ideas, whether they’re full-blown startups, a side hustle, or just for fun.

Thanks again for your ongoing support of this community. Whether you were a presenter, a volunteer, a sponsor, an attendee or a community supporter – this unique and special community is what it is because of you. And if you thought 2019 was big… just wait until you see what we have in store for 2020.

Happy New Year!

Maria Ploessl

Executive Director
