Join us on July 15th at 2 pm CST for the BETA Summer 2020 Showcase — a science fair for startups, where tech enthusiasts, reporters, investors, and the general public meet with founders from 20 of the top emerging companies in Minnesota. Showcase allows founders to hone their pitch, build awareness, raise funding, find technical support, mentors, expert advice, customers, and keep a forward momentum during what has been an unpredictable year.
WHAT’S NEW & WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE FIRST-EVER VIRTUAL SHOWCASE
For the first time, we are taking Showcase virtual using the online events platform Hopin. It will still be the event you know and love (just BYOB this time using our brewery partners below) featuring 11 tech startups currently in the BETA Cohort and nine startups from across the state.
