October 5 TREK

Kinnect at TREK October 5

Rebecca Larson Isaak to Speak

TREK is getting back to business! After a month off to recalibrate, TREK is launching into its second year. TREK, or “Two Rivers Entrepreneur Kinnection,” is a monthly gathering of, by, and for entrepreneurs, mentors, and others. It is a place to learn, ask questions, and support others in the entrepreneur community.

Becca Larson Isaak is the October guest speaker. Opening her own boutique, TOTAL BETTY, is the fulfillment of a life long dream.

Beginning in October, TREK Kinnections will be at the Wired Bean. There are no attendance requirements or membership fees. The group will continue to meet 9:00-9:45AM on the first Tuesday of each month. New this year, Kinnections will include time for round table discussion. Michelle Landsverk, Advance Thief River Director and project coordinator for TREK, has been a champion for entrepreneurs for the past two decades, first in her role as Director of the Minnesota Women’s Business Center, and later as project coordinator for the IDEA Competition and Chairwoman of Pine to Prairie Angel Fund.

“Entrepreneurs are the foundation of our regional economy,” Landsverk said. “They are the job creators and the innovators. TREK is one thing we can do to support our area entrepreneurs and strengthen the local entrepreneurial culture.”
