  • This location is shown only to members

The Walker Art Center is an innovative museum and an important part of the arts infrastructure of Minnesota.  We will meet in the lower lobby cafe, at the long table if we can get it.  Free admission on Thursdays.  After discussion of design in products and problem-solving, we will fan out and explore the new exhibits to inspire our own creativity. To-go food and wine/beer available. Parking ramp underground.

About the Meetup

Meet other entrepreneurs and independent product developers.   Bring your questions and "group-source" the answers.  Hear from specialized experts willing to share their insights.  Get energized and stay motivated to pursue your goals.  Relax and have a beer and interesting conversations.  Participants have found clients and collaborators through this Meetup.

Software, electronics, life sciences, med tech, services, products, materials, designs--innovators of a wide variety of value propositions participate. Both for-profit and non-profit entrepreneurs participate.  Many are starting their second or third business.  A partner in McKinsey & Company (NYC) turned up one evening. We have enjoyed meeting people from China, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Italy, India, Bangladesh and other countries.  Many are newcomers to Minneapolis/St. Paul.  Multi-generational, our age range has been 20 to 70+.  Several investors make periodic visits for those of you looking for capital.

Let the host know what kind of expert you would like to have at a future meeting and feel free to refer speakers.  We look for speakers who have a message that is broader than, "buy my product or service".

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
