Start Up Minot to Work with Entrepreneurs and Start-Up Companies to Grow Their Business
Start Up Minot will begin in 2022 as a new effort to invigorate, encourage and entice entrepreneurs in the Minot region to execute their business idea. A regional coalition of support is in place for startup companies, anyone with an idea for growing or starting their own business, or if an existing business is stuck and needs some help. Start Up Minot is two-pronged, with a cohort-based 10-week class called Start Up Minot Academy powered by CO.STARTERS, and a monthly coffee/networking event under the name Start Up Minot that will focus on sharing the story of new and growing companies while connecting like-minded business leaders.

The coalition of support includes the following groups and businesses: Small Business Development Center, Minot Area Chamber EDC, MSU Severson Entrepreneurship Academy, Strengthen ND, Creedence Energy, Souris Basin Planning Council, Dakota Business Lending and others.

The Start Up Minot Academy powered by CO.STARTERS is a cohort-based program with the goal of giving fresh minds the tools, insights and relationships needed to succeed in implementing their business idea. The Academy goes for 10 weeks, meeting one day a week for three hours. It is a hands-on course – NOT a lecture – where you will join like-minded individuals on a journey to figure out how your business will work. Guest speakers, experts in their field from the community, will be at every class to help bring real-life answers to your real-life questions. Start Up Minot Academy, a facilitated class, would typically cost between $750 and $1,000 for the 10 weeks, but for this first year it is being offered at $100/person. This reduced cost is made possible due to the generous support of the Small Business Development Center and other sponsors.

The first cohort of classes for Start Up Minot Academy powered by CO.STARTERS begins on Jan. 13, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Carnegie Center in downtown Minot. This continues for ten weeks and ends on March 17 when we celebrate your success! Other cohort classes start in May and in September.

To sign up for the class, please contact Mark Lyman at the Minot Chamber EDC, 852-6000 or mark@minotchamberedc.com and he will walk you through the simple registration process, or go online to www.minotchamberedc.com/doing-business/start-upminot/. Anyone can be a student in the class, you are not required to be a Chamber EDC member.
