Spring, Time for Some Real Competition?

As detailed by my colleague and fellow poster, Max Bremer in his post about this time last year, one of the great competitions that commences in March (in addition to that minor basketball tournament happening about now—sorry for the reminder Gopher fans) is the Minnesota Cup.

In case you’re new to the startup scene in Minnesota (or have been living in a cave the last seven years), the Minnesota Cup is a business plan competition that identifies the top Minnesota-based start-up businesses in each of six different divisions: High Tech (a division sponsored by this blog’s favorite entrepreneurial service law firm), LifeScience and Health IT, Energy & Clean Tech, General, Social Entrepreneurship, and Student. You can submit your application to be named a top Minnesota start-up company beginning today and continuing through May 17th. For more information about the Minnesota Cup and this year’s event details, visit the competition’s website.

There are lots of reasons to enter the competition, and as Max detailed last year in his post, it isn’t just about the $25,000 in prize money. If you’ve been thinking about that next great “breakthrough idea,” maybe it’s time to do something about it. Who knows, you could be the next Florida Gulf Coast University...
