University Alumni Association Launches New Alumni Market
On November 14th the University of Minnesota Alumni Association (UMAA) launched the Minnesota Alumni Market, an online store selling products created by University of Minnesota alumni. Believed to be the first of its kind, the market will feature everything from home goods to apparel.
“The Alumni Market gives everyone who loves the U a way to support the work of alumni creators, provides an opportunity for established alumni entrepreneurs to extend their reach, and helps new alumni entrepreneurs launch their businesses,” said UMAA CEO Lisa Lewis. Included in the new market are products created by four College of Design alumni:
Ben VandenWymelenberg (B.S. ’12, Architecture) – Woodchuck USA
Niles Deneen (B.S. ’00, Graphic Design) – Deneen Pottery
