Accelerator Program

Red Wing Ignite has a business accelerator for early stage entrepreneurs. Unlike bigger cities, the community and the organizations in Red Wing are aligned so that you can launch your businesses faster with fewer logistical challenges.

With a network of entrepreneurial mentors, we work tirelessly to support science, technology, and engineering projects by providing advice and training to prepare early stage entrepreneurs for their next step.

The business accelerator is for early stage entrepreneurs who need help getting from idea to company. We invest our resources, space, and time in exchange for equity in the business. We partner with investors who are seeking business opportunities with the following criteria:

  • Passionate teams
  • Proprietary technology
  • Validation in the market
  • Strong value proposition
  • Rapidly growing market - large market potential
  • Headquartered in Minnesota
