MN Cup is the premier resource for Minnesota entrepreneurs. We support emerging entrepreneurs from across the state through events, educational programming and an annual new venture competition that provides them with tools, resources and support to launch and accelerate the development of their new ventures.
Entering its eleventh year, the MN Cup is now the largest statewide new venture competition in the country. More than 10,000 participants have entered the competition and over 100 million media impressions have been documented since MN Cup’s inception. Participants have gone on to successfully launch their businesses, raise capital and create jobs in Minnesota. Finalists from 2005 have raised nearly $170 million to spur innovation and job creation in our state.View Resource
