You will also walk away with $4,000 worth of research and presentation materials to help you turn inspiration into action.

Minneapolis Innovation Conference Venue
Whether you’ve visited the Twin Cities before or not, there is plenty to see or do. If you have some time on your hands before or after the Minneapolis Strategy Conference, be sure to check out some of the city’s most unexpected venues. This includes stopping for some delicious vegan grub at The Herbivorous Butcher, sampling some exceptional sour beers at Wild Mind Artisan Ales, and then crafting an original score on the city’s famed Sidewalk Harp. If you’d rather enjoy some downtime, head over to Orfield Laboratories in South Minneapolis to explore an anechoic chamber that has been dubbed “the quietest place on earth.”
