Tech Cities 2019

Tech Cities 2019

At the Intersection of Business and Technology in Minnesota

At Tech Cities, industry professionals, policy-makers, educators, and emerging talent connect and share perspectives on the state of Minnesota tech.

About Tech Cities

Minnesota boasts a growing number of tech businesses and professionals. Tech-focused firms occupy half the spots on the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal Fast 50 list, offering an array of IT solutions, business analytics, and e-commerce services. Yet despite local resources, some companies have left the Twin Cities in search of tech talent and community.

Started in 2015 at the Carlson School of Management, Tech Cities focuses on conversations around tech talent and innovation in Minnesota. Members of the community share their insights and shape the program content in a setting that promotes mutual learning.
