The Collaborative®
Convening, Exploring, Serving & Celebrating Minnesota's Innovation Economy Since 1987

For 27 years, The Collaborative served Minnesota's entrepreneurs, investors, teams and innovators. From first-time startups, growth company CEOs, CFOs and middle-market teams -- to angels, VCs and investors -- a lot of our work has focused on Helping to Build Minnesota's Companies (our tagline). The Collaborative continues this work with its highly regarded CFO WorkGroups.

2014 was a year of transition as The Collaborative wrapped up its entrepreneurial event activities with five well attended first half 2014 programs and alignments with three outstanding Minnesota business organizations. The Collaborative was also thrilled to have transitioned the premier finance conference to MHTA.

January 2014 Announcement Suspending Events
After 27 years, The Collaborative and its President, Dan Carr, announced the suspension of The Collaborative's entrepreneurial events after the first half of the year (recaps of our recent past events can be found here). More on the announcement can be found here.
     
CFO WorkGroups Continue Unchanged

The Collaborative continues facilitating its private CFO WorkGroups (these are small targeted, confidential groups of top finance executives convened separately from The Collaborative event and publishing activities).

 
 
February 2014: Alignments with LSA, MHTA & ACG
The Collaborative announced alignments with the Association for Corporate Growth - MN Chapter (ACG), LifeScience Alley (LSA) and the Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA). All existing members and sponsors of The Collaborative are grandfathered in with full member benefits in these stalwart organizations for the remainder of 2014.

It has been our true privilege to serve and convene Minnesota's entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem for all these years.
Thank you.
