Ciceron supports new TECHdotMN startup

Ciceron recently became the gold sponsor of Minneapolis startup TECHdotMN TV, a technology news resource for Minnesota. Their first season of TV episodes covered everything from industry news and up-and-comers in the tech space, to local design, development and network news

With season two of episodes in the works, Ciceron CEO and Founder, Andrew Eklund sheds some light on his decision to support the Minnesota-based company:

“For the past 16 years, Ciceron has been a part of the vibrant Minnesota web and tech scene, and it never ceases to amaze me at the leading talent we have right here in the Twin Cities. I travel quite a bit, and while the rest of the country may make certain assumptions about other cities, I am absolutely certain that BETTER technology and BETTER businesses are launched right here.

I’m supporting TechdotMN because the investor community needs to wake up and see what’s going on here. Hell, we have at least four or five more productive months here than anywhere else. What else are you going to do in January than innovate and design cool shit that actually works and has a real business model?

There’s a certain disingenuousness to the pre-revenue/never-revenue business models of Silicon Valley and elsewhere that simply doesn’t exist in Minnesota. We build real companies that innovate around better ideas.”
