Casey Shultz

Executive director





Casey Shultz knew she’d have a lot to learn when she took over as executive director of Minneapolis startup accelerator Beta in January, but like so many others, she couldn’t have predicted the complications 2020 would bring. On top of hiring a new team and learning the ropes of a new job, she also had to move all Beta and Twin Cities Startup Week events, including Beta’s startup accelerator cohort program, to virtual platforms. Today she’s gearing up to lead the organization’s launch of a three-year strategy aimed at increasing Beta’s impact. She’ll also be leading a strategic plan aimed to grow Twin Cities Startup Week into a global destination that showcases the arts, culture, food, and innovative spirit of Minnesota.
