Saturday, June 15, 2013

A group of mostly Minnesota investors have built a prototype electric tricycle that they hope will be a hit with commuters. Mike Porter, director of the Master of Business Communication Program commented on the start-up's plans for growth, which involve finding more investors.

“They are going to have to show up with more than cash,” said Porter. “They are also going to have to show up with expertise and be able to say, ‘Here is what you are missing and here is how I can work with you.’?”
