Lt. Governor Visits 75F for the #InnovateMN Campaign

Apr 3, 2017 4:55:27 PM



Lt. Governor Tina Smith joined commissioner Shawntera Hardy, Senator Jim Carlson and additional team members to visit the 75F office in Burnsville on Tuesday, March 21st. For her #InnovateMN Campaign, Lt. Governor Tina Smith is touring Minnesota businesses in an effort to grow local business and help layout a framework of resources for anyone hoping to start their own business.  
Commissioner Shawntera Hardy, Lt. Governor Tina Smith and 75F CEO, Deepinder Singh
We gave a proud tour of our very eccentric office. Those that joined seemed to think that it's a very cool place to work and we think so too. CEO and 75F founder, Deepinder Singh, provided a brief update on who we are, what we do and most importantly, why we do it. After seeing our building automation system in action and hearing about its functionality, the group sat down to coffee and muffins to further a discussion on local business and smart buildings. 

In two years, we raised $2.58 million from investors with the help of the Angel Tax Credit, which was a program managed by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED). Therefore this topic hit home with everyone involved in the conversation.

Deepinder sees Minnesota as a good place to start a business. “It’s extremely innovative and people are hard working,” he says. “In certain niches, there’s a thriving ecosystem.”

A special thank you to Lt. Governor Tina Smith for taking an interest in MN small businesses and startups. We greatly appreciate the visit from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development. Read the #InnovateMN Employment and Economic Development article on 75F
