Dear Minnestar community,

What a month. I don’t know about you, but in times of uncertainty I seek community to get me through. And in these difficult times, we need community more than ever.

So at Minnestar, we’ve decided to do something about it. We’ve increased the number of MinneAMAs, rescheduled Minnebar for the fall, and added a virtual (mini) Minnebar on April 25th to get us connected, pumped up, and learning:

Save the (new) Dates: 


Saturday, September 19th 2020

We are excited to announce that Minnebar will be held on the Saturday leading into Twin Cities Startup Week – launching that massive week of connecting and learning with the nation’s largest and longest running tech (un)conference. More info to come, but get ready for #MNtech’s biggest event of the year.

*We will remain vigilant in monitoring health and safety recommendations and will proactively communicate any updates due to COVID-19, if needed.

(mini) Minnebar

Virtual – via Crowdcast

Your community is not backing down – we will take April 25th (the original date for Minnebar) and be #TogetherApart for a day of connection, learning, and a ton of fun. We will hear from the likes of:

  • Paul DeBettignies
  • Adeel Ahmad
  • Eryn O’Neil
    … and many more!

Full schedule, event information, and more can be found HERE.


It’s not the typical April Minnebar we imagined, but it will be a more dynamic, responsive, and better event than ever.

More information to come. In the meantime, stay safe, stay home, and stay connected.
