Wednesday, February 26, 2020
Minnesota is stepping up its commitment to startups with another round of grants. On Wednesday, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development announced that it has awarded $450,000 to six organizations as part of its “Launch Minnesota” initiative.
The organizations will form the basis for the state’s Launch Minnesota Network. The grants, which have been matched with nearly $900,000 in private funds, were awarded through a competitive request for proposal process. Applications will open for next year’s grants in the fall.
