Jan 26, 2018 4:07:22 PM

Check out the freshly shared Rise of the Rest 2018 Ecosystem Playbook from Steve Case and J.D. Vance's Revolution. Rise of the Rest (RotR) "is a nationwide effort powered by Revolution to showcase founders in emerging startup ecosystems across the U.S. Since the tour launched in 2014, Steve Case has traveled more than 6,000 miles on a bus to visit 26 diverse cities and personally invested more than $4 million in local startups." The Rise of the Rest Seed Fund recently announced several major financial backers who are helping support agile innovators across the country.

Representing Minnesota's Innovation Ecosystem

Starting on page 31, you'll find the section on Minneapolis (though, I'm sure they mean to include the Greater Twin Cities Metro Area, including St. Paul....and Burnsville). The section written by John Stavig features some key highlights of Minnesota's magnetism, including community, workforce and the combination of large corporations and vibrant startups. Many of the ecosystem resources have been instrumental in 75F's journey so far. Here's what's featured:

We're thankful for the Rise of the Rest support of 75F, plus our Minnesnowta origins and support ecosystem, bolstered by the BoldNorth (and hopefully some football-fueled funds) and the good people who Make It MSP. Here's to an even greater Minneapolis section in next year's edition.
