Minneapolis is one of the country’s largest and fastest-growing tech regions, especially in the finance industry, with a 52% growth rate in tech jobs within credit intermediation since 2019. The gateway of Minnesota’s technology corridor, Minneapolis has a major part in the $31.1 billion in revenue from technology across the nation, with at least 6% of that coming directly from the City of Lakes, according to CompTIA’s 2019 Cyberstates Report. The city is booming for techies, a hotbed of activity that holds more than 136,000 tech jobs, which is more than 60% higher than another noteworthy tech city, Austin. Although FinTech is currently the leading sector in the technology realm, healthcare and manufacturing have plenty of room for those looking for a secure career. Along with the state’s inexpensive cost of living, Minnesota’s tech pay is almost twice as high as the average state wage.
Those with an entrepreneurial spirit love Minnesota. Business.org ranks the city in the top ten on its list of U.S. cities for entrepreneurs and startups, which has shown remarkable growth at 121.3%, the highest of any of the top ten locations. The incubation environment for new business is additionally spurred on by the MN Cup, the largest statewide startup competition in the country, which has supported more than 10,000 entrepreneurs. The energy this contest pumps into the innovative spirit in the city means that high-tech finalists have raised tens of millions of dollars that light up the number of jobs created.
The Minnesota Tech Corridor is a partnership of five cities and two counties with the singular vision of recruiting technology companies to the region and supporting the growth of emerging, existing, and relocating entities. Named the Top Tech Talent Market by Forrester Research and the Top Ten Tech City in North America by Cushman Wakefield, the accolades keep rolling in. There is physical space to support all tech groups, too, with more than 1,000 acres dedicated to those who desire to build, located only thirty minutes from MSP Airport. The hub strives to be carbon neutral, with 100% renewable energy and battery storage options.
Minneapolis’ strong economic performance has made the city the envy of the Midwest. The economy is highly diversified and includes headquarters for corporations in retail, energy, food brands, industrial manufacturing, and well-known names in technology. Minneapolis also has a grounded nature in how it approaches tech growth: it doesn’t want to be the next “Silicon” anything. Instead, the business model the city is following to stand out in the sometimes noisy tech crowd is to first create a cluster of skilled business and project managers. This has created extensive success with turning medium-size companies into giants since the most important resources—the employees—never leave the city. Educated managers at every level, who can move to any other town or company they choose, have made their choice clear: they want to stay in a place where their jobs are rewarding, and their salary isn’t eaten up by rent.
Tech professionals are relocating to the City of Lakes, or if they are already lucky enough to have their tech career in Minneapolis, they’re moving up the ladder quickly. Minneapolis has seen tremendous net migration in tech talent, unlike many other Midwest metro areas. Minneapolis draws its tech talent from within, as well as from Chicago, Des Moines, and Kansas City. The Midwest hasn’t always been on the radar as a draw for technology, although solid sectors such as finance, automotive, and agriculture have had solid roots from the start. However, companies are looking toward the Heartland, particularly Minneapolis, according to TechRepublic. Minneapolis is the focal point for major corporations to relocate or stay put when already established for big reasons, such as the affordable cost of living for employees—a huge advantage. Because of that, companies can offer cutting-edge jobs in technology that are identical to what can be found in any Silicon hub, still with the lucrative pay scales jobs in tech tend to pay. Companies like Target, UnitedHealth Group, Cargill, Best Buy, 3M, and Lucas are places where techies find top-level jobs that put their skills to work. Each entity is short on network engineering and cloud computing buffs, FinTech pros, and healthcare technologists, and companies are willing to offer large incentives to work for them in Minneapolis, where they have plenty of space to grow.
Growth is evident in Minneapolis' startup science, which is outpacing other tech hubs. The City of Minneapolis is committed to supporting emerging tech companies, which in turn, helps the city’s goals. Their mission is to provide all tech industry sectors with high-quality support, cost-effective technology solutions, and workforce enablements services. Their mission states that they strive to be the most valued pattern that transforms the tech landscape of Minneapolis through non-profit efforts. Direct measure campaigns they share with other community support systems include workforce availability, decision support, infrastructure, and connections to funding solutions.
Unlike more well-known tech hubs, Minneapolis has something extremely important in the current professional climate: affordability for businesses and individuals. Residents in the City of Lakes take advantage of that moniker, enjoying boating in the summer and ice fishing in the winters—something that not many other tech hubs can offer. The Chain of Lakes, including Lake of the Isles, Bde Maka Ska, and Lake Harriet, are the most popular attractions year-round, especially in winter, with plenty of options for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Even moving water dominates the scene with many waterfalls, which welcome canine companions to wander around the many pathways.
Lesser-known treasures that locals love are the presence of dozens of restaurants that feature Somali cuisine. The delicacies these eateries present aren’t found in many other locations and are completely authentic, giving foreign flair to an otherwise decidedly American town. There is disposable income that tech professionals can spend on a night out on the town, too, with housing prices so low, a $100,00 tech job gets more multi-bedroom homes, avocado tastes, and climbing gym memberships than in other coastal metropolises. Those salaries are extraordinary, too, with Digital Designers making an average of $112,000 per year and Software Engineers making around $88,000 annually.
In innovative and technology-rich Minneapolis, high salaries across all tech sectors make acquiring the skills it takes to enter a career in tech a wise investment.
