TCB Q&A: Steve Grove, Minnesota's Economic Development Czar
Saturday, February 01, 2020
The former Google exec explores the challenging realities of growing the state's startup and innovation economy.
Steve Grove had been with Google for more than a decade but wanted to get out of Silicon Valley. The Northfield native and his family moved back to Minnesota in 2018.
“I was always in the business development and strategy side,” Grove says. “Google didn’t have an office here. I had a global team that I led when I was at Google, so working remotely from here was doable. I worked from a co-working space.”
