On May 30, it was announced that Accessible360 is one of 80 semifinalists in the 2017 MN Cup! The MN Cup, in its thirteenth year, is a statewide entrepreneurial competition where various start-up companies compete for a share of the $450,000 in prize money.
Three finalists from eight divisions will be chosen to present their final business plans in August 2017. Each division winner will be announced shortly after. One start-up will be chosen as having 2017’s best new business idea at the awards celebration on October 9 at the University of Minnesota.
There were a record number of applications by minority-led companies for the 2017 MN Cup! Out of the 520 applicants, 29 percent are led by minorities and 37 percent are led by women.
Previous MN Cup finalists have gone on to raise more than $230 million for their businesses, so this would be a big win for Accessible360! We certainly wish them the best!
