Hi, what are you looking for?


What Minneapolis investors are looking for (hint: it’s not just Minnesota startups)

TechCrunch City Spotlight Minneapolis with Mary Grove, Justin Kaufenberg, & Haje.

During this live event, TechCrunch interviewed Mary Grove, managing partner of Bread & Butter Ventures, and Justin Kaufenberg, managing director of Rally Ventures, about their investment strategies. Both are based in Minneapolis, and they are using the city as a lookout tower for what’s happening across the US.

Those not familiar with the Minneapolis ecosystem might scratch their heads, and wonder why not be based in the more traditional epicenters of investing — Bay Area, New York, or Boston. It may have been true in the past that that’s where the bulk of the opportunities are, but in our interview, Grove and Kaufenberg explain that a lot has changed in the last 10-15 years.
