Relive the Action: Minnedemo28 Recap

“Ideas were powerful, pitches were great, energy was great & the venue was outstanding. Thanks to the team for putting an outstanding event. I never wanna miss any Minnedemo!”

On Thursday, February 8th nearly 700 techies, designers, investors and entrepreneurs descended on the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis to attend Minnedemo28. Minnedemo, held three times a year, is the premier showcase for working technology products and tech innovation in Minnesota.

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 7 incredible groups, and even had a visit from the Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey. Be sure to check out their demos below!

Fast Facts:

  • 57% of presenters were women and/or POC
  • 33.3% of attendees identified as developers/engineers
  • 96.6% of survey respondents said they 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 at Minnebar13 April 14th at Best Buy!
