About the Local Legends speaker series
Startups are nothing new in Minnesota. Many of the products and services we take for granted were started by a lone entrepreneur at some time. Target, General Mills, Medtronic, 3M, Best Buy? All founded by someone with a big idea. We want to sit down with the founders of well-known and much-loved local businesses and projects and simply ask them, “how’d you do it?”
