2021 Startup Community Events

We're excited to see you again soon!

With vaccine availability expanding and COVID-19 cases/hospitalizations down in Minnesota, Governor Walz announced new measures that went into effect on March 15, 2021 to further loosen restrictions on important parts of work, life and play throughout the state. Find current guidance and restrictions here and watch MN DEED's March 15 business leader update for more information.

While we need to remain cautious, MSP-based entrepreneurial support organizations are preparing for the potential of again hosting in-person events and programming this year! By taking a moment to complete this brief survey, you can help local organizations better understand when to consider planning in-person events to learn, connect and network based on the startup community's comfort level.

As we prepare to gather in-person once again, please continue to wear a mask, keep groups small and distanced, wash your hands, get tested if you feel it’s appropriate and get a vaccine if you are eligible.
