The Greater Minneapolis-Saint Paul (MSP) region is known for its community of problem-solvers, creative thinkers and innovators. And in 2020, there are no shortages of challenges to confront. The best of that innovative spirit will be on display at Twin Cities Startup Week (TCSW), one of the largest free entrepreneurial events in the country. This year the fun is going virtual, but we couldn’t fit it all into one week. Instead, thousands of attendees will gather virtually for programming, demos, networking and more September 7-25, 2020.
Get the VIP Treatment
If you’re accepted into the TCSW Virtual Fly-In program, you’ll get a free VIP ticket to all of this year’s TCSW programing. TCSW brings together entrepreneurs, builders, creatives, investors and more to connect and consider what’s next for our community and our world. From conversations with local leaders to private networking events, you’ll have a front row seat to the action from wherever you call home.
A Chance to Win Free Flights
A few lucky winners who apply to take part in the Virtual Fly-In program will receive a $400 travel voucher to visit MSP in the future. We know travel opportunities and safety in 2020 is limited, which is why we’ll honor the voucher through 2021. We want you to see this great region and community for yourself – safely, and when it makes sense for you!
Big Names, Big Opportunities
In addition to a flourishing startup scene, 50 Fortune 500 companies were founded in the Greater MSP region. At the TCSW Culture & Career Fair, you’ll have a chance to hear about open positions at Target, Best Buy, Cargill, 3M and more.
Community and Culture
In addition to meeting companies and entrepreneurs, as a VIP you’ll get to meet folks from our renowned food, art, music and entertainment community and leave with connections that will outlast a pandemic. But don’t just take it from us. Hear what past participants had to say:
