Lessons Learned From Selling A U.P. Based Product to the World
Bob Jacquart, CEO and owner of Jacquart Fabric Products and a member of the Michigan Tech Board of Trustees, will speak at Michigan Tech Thursday, February 25, in the first of an ongoing speaker series sponsored by the Pavlis Honors College and the new Innovation Center for Entrepreneurship.
Jacquart Fabric Products is the home of the Stormy Kromer. Jacquart was born and raised in Ironwood and acquired the Stormy Kromer brand from the original owner in 2001 when he learned production of the hats was about to cease.
His team has built a globally-recognized brand around a U.P.-based manufacturing company. Jacquart will share his experiences and lessons learned in a short presentation followed by a question and discussion session.
Bring your friends and stop by at 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the Pavlis Honors College Collaboration Space in M&M room 722 for a great story and insightful wisdom from a true entrepreneur.
Attendees will have the chance to enter a raffle to win a Stormy Kromer of their own!
