The Caux Round Table: A Business and Public Policy discussion on venture capital in Minnesota

Kathy Tunheim, strategic communications executive and a senior economic and job growth advisor to Gov. Mark Dayton Date: September 17, 2013
Time: 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Location: Atwood Memorial Center, Cascade Room
Description: Economic growth is the only road to a better future for Minnesota, but no growth can occur without investing today in future profitability. Minnesota lacks access to sufficient investment capital to promote and sustain needed economic growth. Once a national center for venture capital, Minnesota today receives less than 2% of funds invested in the United States. The prosperity odds have shifted against the state, its businesses, and its people. Without investment in growth, jobs will be too few and family incomes too little. Tax revenues for local and state government will fall short of what is needed to provide robust, public services and a high quality of life for Minnesotans.
Panelists: Leading the discussion will be Kathy Tunheim, principal and CEO of Tunheim, a Minneapolis strategic communications firm. She is a senior economic and job growth advisor to Dayton.

Also at the discussion table:
- King Banaian, professor of economics, St. Cloud State
- Rick Bauerly, managing partner, Granite Equity Partners, St. Cloud
- Nicholas Conant, financial advisor, Wells Fargo Advisors, Minneapolis
- Sahand Elmtalab, financial advisor, Minneapolis Financial Group
- John Stavig, Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota
Sponsors: The discussion is hosted the Caux Round Table and these St. Cloud State entities: School of Public Affairs and the Herberger Business School. Since 1986, Minnesota-based Caux Round Table has promoted ethical business practices worldwide.
For additional information, see the Caux Round Table announcement.
