During the weekend of May 18 – 19, the city of Minneapolis will open its doors to the public for a unique look at the architectural, business and civic wonders of the community through Doors Open Minneapolis. This weekend-long civic celebration will provide attendees with free behind-the-scenes access to 110+ unique venues throughout Minneapolis.
Doors Open Minneapolis is about highlighting the countless partnerships that make the city such a great place to live, work and play. As presenting sponsor, Comcast is proud to help drive the city’s renaissance with the technology powering today’s gig economy and delivering the kind of innovation modern businesses rely on.
For example, Comcast Business is partnering with companies like Woodchuck USA, one of this year’s Doors Open Minneapolis host sites, to imagine the future and shape the world in new ways. With their mission of putting nature back into people’s lives, Woodchuck USA is using innovative technology to create closer connections with the Earth and the community around us.
Kalyn Hove, Vice President of Comcast Business in the Twin Cities, and Woodchuck USA co-founder John Guenveur talk about the importance of partnerships, innovation and creating opportunities in this Doors Open Minneapolis podcast, hosted by Ann Bauer.
