“We are fortunate to have Wise IT Consulting as our sixth partner organization,” said Jim Moar, MESA President. “Like MESA, Wise IT Consulting cares deeply about Minnesota’s technology environment. As an organization, they are passionate about giving back and seeing our software ecosystem and economy thrive. We are pleased to welcome them to our MESA community.”
With 79 Minnesota-based emerging software companies mentored, MESA’s track record and pro bono approach to coaching founders/CEOs was a natural fit for Wise IT. Wise IT’s technology expertise aligns well with those MESA mentees looking to add essential IT staff or scale their software solution, on either a full-time or fractional basis.

In 2016, he launched Wise IT Consultancy and over its seven years in business, has built a thriving business.
“I first became acquainted with MESA several years ago through Kevin Spanbauer, who was deeply involved in the MESA community,” explained Dan. “More recently, I met with John Moroney who is also deeply invested in MESA and its mission. Like MESA and all its mentors, I’m interested in giving back to replenish and grow the software resources in the Minnesota technology community.”
Dan continued, “My philosophy in partnering with MESA or any not-for-profit organization, is what can I do to support the mission? How can I be of greatest service to the organization and help?”
