As Minnesota Rising works to build the network for what's next, you're invited to join us in linking leaders across the Twin Cities. We're bringing together experienced and emerging leaders to reflect on their respective leadership journeys, burning questions for their next steps, and advice and ideas for the future of their careers and communities! Through speed-networking style conversations, you'll be able to connect with innovative leaders and build a stronger network for yourself and for Minnesota. Join us in this unique opportunity to connect and collaborate!

Who Cares About Minnesota?
Jeffrey Miller, Contributing Writer
Who cares about Minnesota? I do. Not only was I born here, I grew up, went to college, met my wife, got married, and started a family here. My roots go deep. Before you begin to think "Of course, he would care, he's never left the state...", I should also mention that as an adult I've also lived for years in other notable places, such as Florida, California, Hong Kong, and in the shadow of the Himalayas in India.
You see, I like to travel...alot. How much? In a 12 month period, I traveled enough miles to circle the globe at the equator - 3 times.
