Find Your Passion. Make it happen.
COFFEE + CONVERSATION WITH THE BEST OF THE TWIN CITIES
Education and collaboration are the foundation of any LAB event. We are taking these elements to another level and offering a monthly event at The Holden Room to inspire, learn, and connect people to businesses and resources. Meet LAB Talks.
A FREE MONTHLY EVENT CURATED BY LAB FOR BUSINESS
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HENNEPIN MADE + PARALLEL CAFE
Each month we will set the stage to hear from those in our community and their compelling stories and insight. A panel of passion pursuers will share their stories that offer different perspectives on making things happen IRL. Be surrounded by other like-minded individuals and take advantage of this energy to jumpstart your day - and your own passion. Join us every month to be inspired, learn from others, stay curious and gain access to resources, tools and strategies to help you make things happen. Learn. Indulge. Apply. Repeat. BONUS: You will leave fueled from conversation as well as the complimentary coffee from Parallel Cafe!
