Minnesota is home to countless Google users and customers — big and small — who are helping drive innovation and economic growth for the state. In 2010, Google provided more than $1 billion in economic activity for Minnesota businesses. Our users, partners, developers and customers are located all over the country including Minnesota. With innovation occurring at the University of Minnesota as well as the tech sector across the state, we’re excited to be joining the Association and being a part of the working group.
While Andrew Wittenborg from MHTA was kind enough to give me their take…
MHTA is dedicated to helping create the best environment for Minnesota’s technology companies. We are very focused on helping develop small and medium-sized companies, but were obviously pleased to have Google join our association. It says great things about our Minnesota technology ecosystem and we will be excited to have Google involved in our various activities.
I know nothing that isn’t posted here in black and white – but I’m kind of excited. One of my very favorite places on Earth is the Science Gallery in Dublin. Google is a partner in the Science Gallery. I have seen speakers from Google there and speakers that I think were sponsored by Google So I’m hoping that we’ll see some of the same in the Twin Cities!
