MESA applauds the achievements of member companies Kidblog and When I Work for winning their respective divisions of the Minnesota Cup.

Led by entrepreneurs Dan Flies and Matt Hardy, Kidblog was the recipient of the first place prize in the General Division, while start-up veteran Chad Halvorson led When I Work to the top spot in the High Tech division.  They have demonstrated they have what it takes to be successful leaders in the software industry, and they are just further validation that Minnesota’s software community is vibrant and gaining steam.  The innovative passion they (and other MESA members) have shown is fueling a welcome resurgence in the state’s software ecosystem.

Keep up the great work!
