Following this week, the startups will receive continued support through virtual workshops and mentorship, reﬁning their pitch and products, before returning to Minneapolis to participate in a product showcase on Feb. 28.
Target Takeoﬀ is just one of several accelerator programs we oﬀer including the METRO Target Retail Accelerator, Certiﬁed by Techstars, Target Incubator, which is focused on the next generation of entrepreneurs, and the Target Accelerator Program in India.
