Upcoming Events

The Office of Small Business and Innovation is working with partners across the state to host a series of events to highlight the many organizations and resources available to help entrepreneurs and small businesses start and succeed.

The events are opportunities for entrepreneurs to meet one-on-one with local, regional and state economic development experts who serve small businesses, main streets and start-ups. At the events, DEED is convening Launch Minnesota partners, Small Business Development Center consultants and other local partners that provide services to entrepreneurs in their areas of Minnesota.

All of the events are free and open to the public. To register, visit Small Business Resource Connection Registration. Event dates, locations and details are as follows:
