Not quite a city but a suburb of St Paul in Minnesota, Woodbury is a part of the "Twin Cities" of the metropolitan area located east of St Paul on the Interstate 94 with a population of 68,349 souls meandering its streets, hanging out in bars or lurking at a coworking venue straining their brains. Home to numerous educational facilities such as the Minnesota Math and Science Academy, you will also find the Rasmussen College focusing on technology and design, business, nursing, health sciences and criminal justice. Woodbury has 45 parks smothering 3,000 acres and about 160km of trails to explore. The city has all of the amenities one would expect to live that perfect life/work balance without feeling that you are living in the big smoke.
The Twin cities region is often ranked as the best entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Midwest that has seen a 40% increase in startup investments between the years of 2016 and 2017. The cities' entrepreneurial locals have set up programs and support systems for other entrepreneurs and serve as mentors for programs such as Techstars Farm to Fork, plus there are many other mentor-driven activities happening. The startup scene is one that is collaborative and connected with plenty of opportunities for newbies to meet likeminded souls via events and organizations. The Twin Cities Startup Week has become the second largest in the country with an impressive collection of tech savvy gurus gathering. Home to 18 Fortune 500 companies, all but one of them grew in Minnesota organically, which proves that the state builds giant and successful corporations.
Woodbury, as with the rest of Minnesota, has a diverse enterprise scene from finance to food, retail to health care and the list goes on. There is a strong resolve amongst the tech scene peers to solve real problems, not fluff or puff startups. There are still a few issues to be addressed such as the prevalence of a traditional corporate path mentality and the fact that its ecosystem is predominantly early-stage companies, but these niggles can be overcome. Coworking venues opening up are creating one more space where Minnesotans can be comfy sprouting off about their own stories and encouraging the startup of new ones.
