The Small Business Association (SBA) and the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul are looking for small to medium size businesses that show a high potential for growth to participate in the E200 Emerging Leaders Program. E200 offers qualified business owners the opportunity to gain specialized training and business growth strategies, to work with experienced mentors and to develop and build a network with your peers, city leaders and financial communities.
E200 training is for small businesses located in the cities of Minneapolis or Saint Paul or surrounding suburbs, with annual revenues between $400,000 to $10 million that have been in business for at least three years. This training is not for start-up businesses. E200 is considered a mini-MBA type of training with the case study being the owner’s business and does require a major time commitment of the business owner/CEO. Thirteen classes will begin mid-April and run through early November. The only costs are your time and commitment to complete the curriculum.
Interested small business owners are invited to complete and submit a 2013 E200 Minnesota Expression of Interest Form by March 5. To learn more about E200 contact Cindy Collett at SBA office by phone at 612-370-2312 or by email email@example.com.
A series of three open house meetings is scheduled to give the public an opportunity to learn about modern streetcar and enhanced bus options being considered within the Nicollet-Central Corridor, and to share their ideas on improving transit service. The open houses will provide an update on the Nicollet-Central Transit Alternatives Study, including the results of the initial screening of transit alternatives and an overview of the next phase of study – the detailed evaluation of alternatives.
The corridor extends from the south along Nicollet Avenue at the 46th Street/Interstate 35W Transit Station, through downtown Minneapolis along Nicollet Mall, over the Mississippi River, and north along Central Avenue NE to the Columbia Heights Transit Center at 41st Avenue NE. The Nicollet-Central Transit Alternatives Study began last fall and will be completed later in the summer of 2013. The outcome of the study will identify a preferred transit enhancement that could serve as the first phase of a longer-range vision for transit service in the corridor.
Open houses are being held:
- Tuesday, Feb. 12, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
MPHA Parker Skyview Community Room, 1815 Central Avenue NE
Presentation at 6 p.m.
- Wednesday, Feb. 13, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

General Information about the FREE Think Tank: A think tank by Webster’s definition is “… an organization that consists of a group of people who think of new ideas on a particular subject or who give advice about what should be done — also called a ‘think factory.’” Catalyst Consulting Group, LLC brings this concept to owners of smaller consulting firms and other local entrepreneurs as an opportunity to co-mentor each other. Read the latest blog about the last think tank. To read more blogs go to the Think Tank Blog located in the lower right-hand corner of Catalyst home page.
Here’s how the Think Tank works: We start by introducing ourselves and sharing a recent success or lesson learned for the first 15 minutes. Then we throw our names into a hat and if yours is picked, you have up to 20 minutes to get great ideas, advice, feedback, or answers about your business question from other consultants like you who have excellent experience and knowledge to share. Three people benefit from this undivided attention in the remaining hour. If the group is large we can divide into two tanks.
Feel free to contact Nancy Weiss at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
