Our Mission is to Make Minnesota a Known Leader in Food and Agriculture Entrepreneurship and Innovation 


Our Role

Be a central hub for resources, a mobilizing connector and ecosystem navigator. We drive connections to resources, information, and individuals within our ecosystem of entrepreneurs and organizations so that it all works stronger, smarter, and faster together.

What Drives Us

Serving the entrepreneur. We want growth-oriented entrepreneurs to focus on scaling and sustaining their businesses... and not searching for answers or support. We believe that entrepreneurs and innovators play a fundamental and critical role in solving the challenges of our food system and  we want to do everything we can to help. Our mantra, "We want entrepreneurs to get what they need in fewer clicks and coffees, and focus on what's important - growing their business."  



We talk to food and agriculture startups every day, listening and helping them connect to the resources and people they need to solve problems and grow their businesses. 


We develop programs to enable authentic engagement and participation for corporations, institutions and investors to support and gain exposure to our entrepreneur community.


We think of the ecosystem as the organizations that support Minnesota's entrepreneurs as well as the entrepreneurs themselves. We drive collaboration, awareness, and maximize activities. We partner with organizations to build on their efforts and fill gaps.
