Startup Capital of the North
We’re proud to be an official sponsor of #TCSW15. Over 50 events have been taking place across the Twin Cities this week to celebrate Twin Cities Startup Week. Local organizers are claiming MSP as the Startup Capital of the North. Events like Beta.MN 2.5 a science fair for startups, the Minnesota Cup and MinneDemo took place with plenty of beer on hand. Tonight kicks off the final event, Startup Weekend Twin Cities.
On Wednesday, Apple made their annual announcement for new product releases. Apple unveiled the Apple Pencil to go with the new iPad Pro, which caused some to laugh because according to Steve Jobs, nobody wants a stylus. There’s a new Apple TV that talks to you. And, of course, the new 6S and 6S Plus iPhones were on display with new 3D Touch. Apple promised there won’t be a sequel of #Bendgate, but only time will tell. You can start placing preorders for the new iPhone at 2:01am CT tomorrow.
