Previously our Marketing and Communications Intern, Summer is now our Community Success Coordinator. She’s currently getting her degree at UW-Superior in Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing.

When she’s not working, you can usually find her doing homework, playing ukulele, or out on a hike. If you ever run into her, ask her about Lake Tahoe.



BETA.MN Original Founders

Our History

BETA was founded in 2013 by Reed Robinson, Ryan Broshar, and Justin Cox with a simple vision—to celebrate the efforts of local tech founders. We hosted our first event—the BETA Showcase—in January, 2014. We found a venue, invited the active startups in our network, and convinced 200+ of our closest friends to see what our startup community is all about.

Though the organization has expanded into a variety of offerings, the mission has never changed—BETA brings people together to support and celebrate the efforts of Minnesota-based entrepreneurs. We do that to increase the likelihood of their success, and to inspire others to join in the action.
