Melissa Kjolsing Lynch






Just about everyone in the local startup community knows Melissa Kjolsing Lynch, who previously led the MN Cup entrepreneurial competition. She served as the founding manager of the Lunar Startups business incubator for American Public Media. And now she helms her own startup, St. Paul-based Recovree. The company’s software is designed to help addiction peer-support counselors stay organized, manage their time, and connect with clients. The company is off to a good start. Recovree won the Impact Ventures division of the MN Cup competition this year and also received an award from the Carlson Family Foundation as the top woman-led business in the competition.
