Director of Community & Impact Investing
I am delighted to join the Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundation where I can fully pursue my passion for sustainable communities and work to make Minnesota a great place to live, for everyone.

Most recently, Casey served as executive director of BETA.MN, a Twin Cities nonprofit that provides Minnesota-based founders of top local tech startups with the resources to grow their companies. At BETA, Casey diversified the board of directors, acquired Tech.MN, a startup newsgathering website, and doubled the size of the BETA team.

Collectively, Casey has helped startups raise over $25 million.
