Business Info

What does your company do?

Our company is a startup incubator focused on the mid-western region in the USA (initially Minnesota). We work with college students and startup founders to help them master the skills they need to research and define new business models, build and market them. The incubator is very focused on helping them, and engineers, learn critical skills for product and software development and delivery. The education is initially in the form of a boot camp but later for those selected there are actual small businesses being started, funded, and grown together. We are a for profit entity that hopes to help many in the midwest develop into massively successful tech startups. The most unique characteristics about our incubator is we are focused on the mid-west region, work closely with the universities in the region, and work closely with founders at a very early stage.
