Techstars Visit Saint Paul
Last Friday, Three Deep played host to mentorship driven, startup accelerator Techstars. Over 20 startup entrepreneurs participating in the 14-week program swung by our office to meet Mayor Chris Coleman and Three Deep Co-Founder, Dan Derosier.
The Techstars are sponsored by locally-based retail company Target. "Beyond providing mentorship, workshops and other great experiences for our startups, Techstars Retail wants its founders to fall in love with the Twin Cities. We're honored to have Mayor Coleman host us in St. Paul,” said Ryan Broshar, Managing Director of Techstars Retail.
Mayor Chris Coleman welcomed the group to Saint Paul. "We are excited to have the opportunity to welcome this exceptional group of innovators to our city and introduce them to a company showing sustained success in Saint Paul,” said Mayor Coleman. “We have a strong business environment, supported in part by great companies like Three Deep Marketing who have chosen to invest in creative office space and grow here."
Before walking across the street to watch the Saints Baseball game at CHS Field, Dan Derosier shared his personal experience about growing his very own company. “Entrepreneurs care about growing business and creating opportunities,” said Dan Derosier, Cofounder of Three Deep. “We’ve grown our digital marketing agency from a basement office to a staff of 48 people. Saint Paul is a business-friendly city for thriving firms and we look forward to welcoming more entrepreneurs to our neighborhood.”
Of course, some of the Techstars attendees Tweeted about this event. Here’s some of what they had to say – along with a link to the Facebook Live stream of Mayor Coleman and Dan Derosier.
Overall, we had a blast. Our team loves working (and playing) in Saint Paul. And we love welcoming people to our new office. Thank you Techstars for being amazing guests. We're inspired by your stories and startup passion. And of course, thank you Mayor Coleman for visiting our office once again and sharing everything awesome about this great city!
