Ecosystem Partner Grow North’s Transition to Naturally Minnesota

Webinar Wednesday: Ecosystem Partner Grow North’s Transition to Naturally Minnesota

Have you heard the news about Grow North’s (an organization devoted to creating an interconnected, sophisticated, invested and accessible ecosystem for Minnesota’s food and agricultural entrepreneurs) transition to Naturally MN under the Naturally Network Umbrella? If you’d like to learn more about what it means for Minnesota’s food and ag entrepreneurial ecosystem, join AURI for our January 11th Webinar Wednesday!

Naturally MN is the ninth chapter of the national Naturally Network (other chapters include New York City, Chicago, Austin, San Diego and Los Angeles) and will continue to empower and engage the state’s food and ag ecosystem locally and beyond. The Naturally Network is the national trade association representing the natural and organic consumer products industry. The Network’s mission is to accelerate the success of natural product companies through community based educational programming, networking events and mentoring initiatives.

This development will put Minnesota on the map in a much more significant way as it connects the state’s food and ag ecosystem with other national players. This is a big level-up for Grow North and it will be exciting to see the outcomes from increased exposure, access and resources.

Hear from Naturally MN’s (Grow North’s) Executive Director Allison Hohn as well as Jason Goux, Naturally MN board member from Compeer Financial, as they discuss this transition and highlight new opportunities. Sponsored by Bremer Bank.

AURI Connects: Webinar Wednesday is a monthly webinar series hosted by the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute. Each webinar explores different aspects of the food and ag sectors in Minnesota—from resources for food entrepreneurs to innovations in coproducts and biobased energy.

Webinars take place on the second Wednesday of the month from 12 pm – 1 pm. Registration is free and open to the public. To learn more about upcoming webinars and watch past recordings, visit us at
