In January, the Edina Community Foundation welcomed submissions for its ‘Bold New Idea’ contest, awarding an Edina resident (or a group of residents) up to $5,000 for their idea to strengthen and celebrate our beautiful city. Five finalists took the stage in April, and the Edina Girls Sport Summit ultimately took home the prize money.
Last month, the Edina Chamber of Commerce and the Edina Community Foundation co-hosted a “CEO Roundtable,” an event to promote economic growth in Edina. The roundtable’s keynote speaker was Kathy Tunheim, the senior advisor to Gov. Mark Dayton on job creation. Tunheim addressed issues that affect the entire state’s business growth, and afterward five local CEOs discussed how Edina has responded to these demands at a local level.
