Creative Leadership


From the innovative computer builders who made the Twin Cities a mainframe headquarters a generation ago to the visionary companies whose philanthropy has enriched our art scene, from medical-tech pioneers and nonprofit innovators to advertisers who broke the Madison Avenue mold, the Twin Cities has gone beyond business as usual time and again, led by people determined to rethink our business, economic,technological, and social relationships--always with an eye to the common good as well as the bottom line. And they're still at it, in boardrooms, classrooms, stores, labs, and studios across the length and breadth of our cities.
