DocuMNtary: The Story of Tech in Minnesota – (Five-minute Trailer)
Minnesota was recently named the fastest growing tech community in the country.
We have an incredible community, we are growing, we need tech talent, and we don’t do a very good job of telling our story. We have so much here, but these stories, opportunities, and communities are not always visible.
DocuMNtary is a project to build awareness of technology in Minnesota by telling our story through a documentary series.
The project objective is to help Minnesota become a top five tech community by retaining and attracting top technology talent.
DocuMNtary will be distributed primarily as a web experience along with other channel partners such as public television. The web experience allows us to ensure that this story is available to all people and organizations in Minnesota and beyond.
The series consists of the 30-minute high-level story, and individual 5-10 minute stories from specific people, companies, industries, or other components of our ecosystem. The documentary format allows us to tell the world not only about our great community, innovation, and company stories, but also gives us opportunity to talk about our great music scene, values, outdoor life, culinary wonders, and a booming craft beer industry to name just a few things that make Minnesota what it is.
Consider watching the full piece and then clicking into one segment about community support, one about our history in technology, and one about our incredible craft beer industry.
We work hard, we are a great community, and we are humble.
