Budget for One Minnesota: Minnesota Innovation Collaborative

Friday, April 12, 2019

States and cities that create attractive environments for startups, entrepreneurs, and innovative talent are quickly distancing their economies from those who do not. For every one job created in the innovation sector, five more jobs are created in adjacent sectors – the strongest network effect in job growth today. Minnesota must put our economy on the cutting edge of this ecosystem by making strategic investments in our innovation ecosystem. 

The proposed Minnesota Innovation Collaborative (MIC) contains a series of initiatives focused on growing Minnesota’s innovation economy by accelerating the growth of our startup ecosystem and attracting top technology talent to the state. Comprised of a collection of new grant programs, a new apprenticeship program, and a physical space for outreach, education and training, the MIC will create a touchstone for the state to support and enhance the state’s visibility and interest in the innovation ecosystem. It will bring together all the key players – founders, venture capitalists, researchers, academia, businesses (including Fortune 500s), and educators – in one space.
