Selection Criteria

The combination we have in Minnesota of Fortune 500s and a diverse and active startup ecosystem is a competitive advantage. BETA’s Bridge program, powered by Livefront, is where these two communities meet to explore new ways to work together.

BETA Bridge measurably increases the collaboration between corporations and startups in Minnesota through intentional connection and conversation. By participating, you will be connected with five other startup and corporate leaders in a 90-minute industry-specific roundtable discussion. Participation in Bridge is free for everyone involved.


BETA Alumni and startups participating in the BETA Cohort receive priority access to Bridge. Exceptions may be made to accommodate teams from Greater Minnesota along with other rapidly scaling startups.

Most teams meet the following criteria:

  • Based in the Greater Twin Cities Metro Area
  • With a scalable tech-enabled product or service
  • That is in market or able to be sold
  • Either bootstrapping or preparing for Seed Stage financing
