    Thank You!

    Thank You to everyone who came out to the MiX launch event last night at Minneapolis City Center! We had an exceptional crowd on hand, and throughout the night residents, workers, visitors, members of government and local decision makers networked and learned about the importance of brainstorming and innovation in our society. 

    We'd like to send out a huge thanks to City of Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges for joining us and providing opening remarks, and thank you to Nate Garvis, Barry Kudrowitz and Sandy Vargas for exceptional speeches on The Power of Ideas. Thank you to the Theater of Public Policy and to Nachito Herrera for providing wonderful entertainment.
