Guiding the health of our tech ecosystem through policy and advocacy discussions

Policy is a critical, yet sometimes veiled, tool that’s used to advance our technology ecosystem. The way we advocate for (and sometimes against) policy has implications for how we innovate, drive business, and leverage technology at our companies and in our day-to-day lives.

This community will help define how MnTech advocates for policies that position Minnesota as an attractive state for technology companies and talent to grow and prosper. It will drive the way we propose policies that support a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in our region.

  • Enjoy regular legislative updates.
