    WHY would you be searching for Minneapolis Upcoming Events on Google?

    Perhaps it is because you are a entrepreneur in Minneapolis or visiting, looking for events to attend to network and grow your business. Or maybe you are an Event Planner and a member of MPI or ILEA, and need to stay in the loop of what is happening in the event industry.

    Either way, I agree with you. The live in person event is the best way to experience life and also to grow your business. We all spend too much time online, and our social structure is breaking down.

    Speaking of EVENTS, here is a link to the Minnesota Event Planners EXPO that attracts 100s of "event savvy" entrepreneurs and business owners.

      Yesterday was the Fourth of July. Also known as independence day. Independence is an interesting topic these days. 

     We went out to the Port of Excelsior to see the fireworks, and also visit our friend Tommy Drummond at Tommy’s Trolley.  While we were out there, I noticed that all of the Paradise Charters boats were booked and out on cruises.

     We love to see our Synergy Collaborative members booked and busy.  

     Don’t forget to register for the upcoming Minnesota Business Expo.  Ask about the specials for members.

     First off, let me admit that the Internet is a wonderful tool for making connections on a global scale. However, there is nothing better than meeting people face to face. 

     One of the main reasons I produce events, is the connections that are made at a live event and the relationships that are created. 

     We currently have multiple business expos planned, and you can see some details by going to the Synergy Event Marketing website.

    Midwest startup accelerator gener8tor announced today that it has selected five companies to participate in its first OnRamp Insurance Accelerator, a new program in partnership with two Twin Cities insurance giants: Allianz Life Ventures and Securian Financial.

    The five companies in the first cohort were chosen from a pool of 545 applicants, gener8tor said in a statement. Each of the selected startups will receive a cash investment of $100,000, office space and access to gener8tor’s network of mentors and investors. OnRamp kicked off on June 6 and will culminate with a demo day at the end of August.

    Gener8tor first announced the OnRamp program in November. Allianz and Securian are big players in the insurtech space. St. Paul-based Securian Financial provides insurance, investment and retirement plans to families and individuals. Golden Valley-based Allianz Life Insurance Co.’s venture arm makes investments in North American insurance startups and backs these companies in all investment stages from seed to growth.

    The OnRamp Accelerator is led by Pooja Shah, who previously was an associate at QBE Ventures in Sun Prairie, Wisc. The program will operate out of gener8tor’s new Twin Cities offices at WeWork Uptown and Osborn 370 in St. Paul.

    Here are the companies in the first OnRamp Insurance Accelerator cohort:

     What is synergy?

    What does the concept of synergy mean to you?  For me, the word synergy is a combination of the words synchronized energy. Two entities working together to create a third entity. 

     Here is a YouTube video I made.

     Before we know it, the snow will be melting here in Minnesota, and the outdoor festivals will begin. 

     We all have human needs, and one of them is the need to relieve ourselves from the libations of celebration. 

     Outdoor bathrooms are a necessity when planning an outdoor festival or concert.

    AI Artificial Intelligence... Do you fear it? Is it real? Is it something to be concerned about?  I did this quick video, about artificial intelligence and Internet algorithms. It does not have anything specifically to do with the event industry, but you might find it of interest.
