Minne Inno's fifth annual Fire Awards comes at an interesting time. The years-long wave of momentum startups have enjoyed nationally could soon be fading, but that doesn’t mean there still isn’t a lot to celebrate in the Twin Cities.


The 50 selected companies have emerged out of the pandemic hotter than ever and are poised to keep that light alive for years to come. The selections below were sourced from nominations submitted by readers, and then sorted into categories ranging from medical devices to fintech.


The Startup of the Year finalists are the companies that have risen above all the others, while the companies in the Early-Stage category represent future Startup of the Year contenders who are Series A stage or earlier.


In July, a Blazer winner will be selected from each category by a panel of judges. Blazer winners are the hottest companies in each category, deserving some extra recognition.
