Jakob is a junior at the Carlson School of Management majoring in Public and Nonprofit Management and Entrepreneurial Management. He grew up in a small town community where he was raised on hometown values – hard work and common sense. He watched his mother start her own non-for-profit business after she endured numerous health concerns. Along with his father and siblings pursuing their own exciting ventures, Jakob has been immersed into a world of entrepreneurship.

He has gained an interest in creative and collaborative workplaces after delving into the various subjects of business studies. Jakob hones his own creative skills through developing the MN Cup branding, design content, and event promotion. He enjoys connecting with entrepreneurs as they develop with their businesses, and hopes to explore his own entrepreneurial venture in the future.
