Globally Connected: Stories from Minnesota Business on the World Stage

February 15 @ 7:00 pm CST

/ Free

This event is being held virtually and is open to everyone.

This webinar is third in the East-West Connections-hosted series Minnesota’s International Influence which shines a light on the history, breadth, and value of Minnesota’s unique international connections and global impact.

Join Global Minnesota and East-West Connections for an online discussion of the importance and impact of global connections on Minnesota’s economy and people, illustrated by three Minnesota businesses and Global Minnesota Corporate Members that have forged big roles on the world stage.

In this session, hear from a representative group of Minnesota-based businesses that have established robust international connections. Visionary entrepreneurs will share the stories of why and how they have built foreign markets for their products, the impact on their companies and communities here at home, and reflect on the enabling conditions in the state that support the development of their international connections.
