Entrepreneurship is hard. And for people without a clear pathway to funding, it’s even harder.

Sometimes well-intended help, support, and feedback isn’t helpful. And in some cases it’s harmful.

If you are on the receiving end of this feedback you may or may not be comfortable speaking up. And you don’t want to risk funding, mentorship, or opportunities. And so the cycle repeats itself. Over and over again.

There are a lot of things that have changed in the MN startup ecosystem in the last 10 years. Which shows we are open to trying new things, growing and learning.

So how do we spotlight the areas for improvement while creating a safe space for feedback? This is where the MN Startup Ecosystem Whitepaper Project comes in.

Come to this session to learn about the project and how you can help underfunded startups gain traction in the Twin Cities.
