About MN Cup
MN Cup is a community-led, public-private partnership supporting Minnesota’s entrepreneurs. We host an annual competition that reaches emerging entrepreneurs from across the state and connects them with tools, resources and support to launch and accelerate the development of their new ventures. Our competition and events are totally free, and we take no equity on the seed funding we give away ($500,000 in 2018.) We can’t find any other competitions like ours - nationally or internationally, which makes us the largest, most impactful statewide startup competition in the world.
