As of July 11, 2017, $3.2 million in tax credits remain for targeted businesses. For more information on eligibility requirements and application process, please visit the Minnesota Department for Employment and Economic Development’s (DEED) Angel Tax Credit page.
MNvest is a Minnesota law permitting investment crowdfunding, a new way to fund Minnesota's growing businesses. Similar to reward-based crowdfunding sites (like Kickstarter), MNvest enables Minnesota businesses to legally advertise investment opportunities to all Minnesota residents.
