Beautiful Signs for a Better Planet
Here is the MN Cup’s announcement of semifinalists.
June 1, 2020 — MN Cup is proud to announce the 90 companies moving forward to our Semifinal Round, the top ten from each of our nine divisions. This season, despite all the challenges presented by COVID-19, we were thrilled to have over 1,000 Minnesotans participate from across the state.
The following companies will move forward to create a pitch deck, summary business plan and one minute video while accessing mentorship and education throughout June and July. Ultimately, they’ll compete for a share of the $500,000 in cash prizes and gain the opportunity to accelerate their businesses with no equity taken in exchange.
During this 16th season of MN Cup, we’ll be offering our events and education sessions virtually until we learn that it’s safe and advisable to gather in person again. To stay up to date on the progress of our companies, follow @MinnesotaCup on Instagram and Twitter, and sign up for our newsletter by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
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 in exchange for the seed funding we give away ($500,000 in 2019). 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.
