A 20-minute question-and-answer session will follow. 

 

Matt Winjum, co-owner of Rhombus Guys, and Ashley Rae, founder of Brand Logic- Her Voice, Her Brand, will be the first presenters. 

“Grand Forks is a great home for any small business, and 1 Million Cups showcases the entrepreneurial spirit that continues to grow in our community,” said Corey Mock, executive director of the Greater Grand Forks Young Professionals in a press release. “This is a perfect opportunity for our community to hear ideas, create constructive dialogue, and empower entrepreneurs to be successful.”
