After a full week of pitch presentation and deliberation by their respective review boards, Minnesota Cup is excited to announce the winners of each of the competition's nine divisions. These teams have advanced through three rounds of judging to achieve first place within their Division -- rising to the top of an initial applicant pool of over 1,600 entrepreneurs. Their next step is to compete against each other for the Grand Prize of $50,000 on top of their existing winnings, which will be decided by MN Cup's grand prize review board on October 8th.
