Driving Innovation & Technology in Minnesota

MHTA is the only membership organization that represents Minnesota’s entire innovation-based economy. Our members include organizations of every size − involved in virtually every aspect of technology creation, production, application and education in Minnesota. Our members cover the spectrum of technology — IT, advanced manufacturing, bio and life sciences, advanced manufacturing, energy and edu-tech fields — and range from some of the world’s leading corporations to small and growing startups. Once an organization joins MN High Tech, all of its employees become members.
