Paying It ForwardCommunity
“A vibrant and growing tech community benefits all its stakeholders. Minnestar and its excellent team are dedicated to executing this mission every day, and I’m proud to support them. I’m excited to see our community continue to grow, and I hope this match campaign will be a small part of that!”
Since 2006, Minnestar has existed to connect, support and grow a thriving Minnesota technology community for everyone. We are a 501c3 nonprofit, committed to providing free events for the community to learn, connect, and get inspired. We are are able to do all this through the support of sponsors and Community Supporters like you!
Recently, Daren Cotter, an incredible founder, investor and community leader stepped up and issued a challenge: with a generous contribution of $10,000 he is looking to the Minnestar community to step up and match it.
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
- Warm fuzzies knowing you’re helping to sustain and equip the Minnesota tech community long into the future
Daren is an entrepreneur, founder & CEO of InboxDollars, a marketing technology company that bootstrapped to $30 million annual revenue. He is also a committed angel investor, having invested in ~35 early stage tech companies, mostly based in MN. In his spare time, he also gives back by serving as a mentor for MN Cup, MESA, and Techstars.
Why are you leading this challenge?
“I am interested in paying it forward to the MN Tech community that has been so much a part of the success of InboxDollars. I support Minnestar’s mission and the dedicated people who are executing it every day.
I truly believe that vibrant and growing tech community benefits all its stakeholders. Minnestar and its excellent team are dedicated to executing this mission every day, and I’m proud to support them. I’m excited to see our community continue to grow, and I hope this match campaign will be a small part of that! I can’t wait to see what the great entrepreneurs and technologists in MN are going to build next.”
