The Business Resource Network is now The Innovation Engine, an integrated suite of services enabling an environment of business innovation and growth.
The Innovation Engine
The Business Resource Network (BRN) services have been tested, improved, and augmented over the last few years to become The Innovation Engine, an integrated suite of services enabling an environment of business innovation and growth for knowledge-based organizations in Minnesota. Our vision is to to grow and secure Minnesota’s position as a global leader in the life sciences and knowledge-based industries.
The Innovation Engine provides a systematic approach to solving the key problems facing knowledge-based companies: access to talent, technology, and money. At the heart of The Innovation Engine system is a global network of strategic, operational, financial, and academic partners built over the last 30 years.
The BioBusiness Alliance of Minnesota built The Innovation Engine over the course of seven years to solve the problem of lack of affordable access to:
Business analysis and development resources, especially for early stage companies
Companies prepared for discussions with sophisticated investors
The next generation of technical business talent
Critical business and operational resources
Grow in Minnesota
The BioBusiness Alliance has an ongoing initiative to help companies expand, start-up, or relocate in Minnesota. Currently, The Innovation Engine is focused on supporting companies that provide exponential returns to Minnesota’s quickly evolving bio-industries.
