Description

In his twin roles at the Golden Valley-based Medical Alley Association, Frank Jaskulke sees himself as a connector, linking key players in the state’s health-tech scene. Part of the work of the 18-year employee at the organization involves connecting startups with investors and other larger firms. Medical Alley Starts, the group’s venture platform, isn’t an incubator or investor per se; it exists to help entrepreneurs find both. “If we can build the biggest, most inclusive network, we can speed up the early front-end work of finding resources so that individual companies can focus on the thing they’re uniquely good at,” says Jaskulke.
