Lessons Learned From Selling A U.P. Based Product to the World

Hats

Bob Jacquart, CEO and owner of Jacquart Fabric Products and Michigan Tech Board of Trustees Member, will be speaking at Michigan Tech in the first of an ongoing speaker series that is sponsored by the Pavlis Honors College and the new Innovation Center for Entrepreneurship. Jacquart Fabric Products is the home of the Stormy Kromer. Bob Jacquart was born and raised in Ironwood, MI and acquired the Stormy Kromer brand from the original owner in 2001 when he learned that production of the hats was about to cease. Since 2001, his team has built a globally recognized brand around a U.P. based manufacturing company. Bob will share his experiences and lessons learned in a short presentation followed by a question and discussion session. Bring your friends and stop by the Pavlis Honors College Collaboration Space on the 7th floor of the M&M building in room 722 Thursday, February 25th at 10:30am 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!
