Minneapolis-Saint Paul is a “headquarters economy,” home to the highest concentration of Fortune 500 headquarters in the country. That can be a huge asset for local startups when corporations act as customers, investors, and partners, as well as support programs like local accelerators or events like Twin Cities Startup Week. Partners across the Forge North coalition, including the Carlson School of Management, Target, Medical Alley Association, EY, and others, worked together to interview dozens of the region’s largest corporations and learn all the ways they’re engaging startups today and what more could be possible in the years to come. Join us to unpack the results.
