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

For 27 years, The Collaborative has served as the resource for Minnesota's entrepreneurs, investors, teams and innovators. From first-time startups, growth company CEOs, CFOs and middle-market teams -- to angels, VCs and investors -- we've been focused on Helping to Build Minnesota's Companies (our tagline).

Each year thousands of entrepreneurs, investors, executives and experts have attended our events, featuring hundreds of top-notch speakers and topics. All aimed at fueling, convening & celebrating Minnesota’s Innovation Economy.

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). For more information on the CFO WorkGroups, call 612.388.3828 or email:
