At Grow North, we work to accelerate the ecosystem for Minnesota's food and agriculture entrepreneurs and innovators who are growing businesses and scaling ideas that will drive change and impact our food system. We do this by focusing on education, connectivity and visibility programming to create an interconnected, sophisticated, equitable and invested ecosystem.
How we do it:
A Digital Destination for
Resources and Information
Scaling ideas require resources and support. We aggregate resources in one digital destination so entrepreneurs, resource providers and more get what they need in fewer clicks and coffees. We have over 200 resources in Grow North's Resource Navigator database and are always look for more.
Education and Connectivity Programming
Growing business that will drive change our food system requires expertise on commercialization and scale. Our programs strive to 'democratize the accelerator' and give broader access to high quality, industry specific education as well as drive interconnectivity across the food and agriculture sector.
Experiences that Elevate and Inspire the Entire Ecosystem
We lead large scale events to drive connectivity and visibility for Minnesota's entrepreneurs, innovators and the entire ecosystem.
Act as Ecosystem Connector and Navigator
We make it easier to navigate and maximize Minnesota's growing ecosystem by acting as a starting point for scaling businesses as well as organizations and individuals who want to get more involved. We represent Minnesota as a sought after speaker at leading industry events and also convene leaders to drive collaboration across different communities within food and agriculture.
