Wherever you find yourself at the end of the day, be sure to make your way to Twin Cities Startup Week’s Friday night party. Start your weekend right with food, entertainment and networking hosted by Meda (Metropolitan Economic Development Association), a Minnesota nonprofit that works with entrepreneurs of color. Meda, in partnership with Twin Cities Startup Week and Chase, will be announcing the results of its Million Dollar Challenge, a pitch competition modeled after Shark Tank that will award a million dollars in financing to ethnic minority-owned business owners from across the country. Come celebrate with us! Your registration will entitle you to one free drink ticket. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.; program begins at 6:30 p.m. Stick around after the announcement for drinks, dancing networking. Join us for the #MillionDollarMeda Party powered by Chase.
