Summary:

This institute would be a center for inspiring, motivating, and helping people think of and do amazing things. It would be a collection of inspirational artwork, movies, quotes, speakers, but the catch is that these works have to all be home grown here in St. Paul or from MN.

Celebrity sponsors could include: Vince Vaughn, Charles Shultz, Jesse Ventura, Jessica Biel, Craig Kilborn, Marion Barber III, Bob Dylan, Prince, the Vikings, Wild, Timberwolves, etc. (Anyone that may have been born here, started their careers here, made an impact to MN)

The institution would work with the sponsors to set up motivational speeches, meet the celebrity type of events, really engage the community to feel like they are part of a bigger movement to promote creativity, innovation, etc.

What makes your idea different or unexpected? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

We have museums, we have celebrity memorabilia, but we don’t have a centralized location that shows off all the talent that came from MN. On top of that, this institution would act to bring these sponsors in to promote how they got to where they are at today. Seeing is believing! The sponsors would simply do inspirational speeches, concerts, simply talk about their struggles and how they made it. All this to hopefully inspire people to make a change.

How will your idea make a difference in Saint Paul? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

St. Paul and MN is a beautiful place with a ton of history. Unfortunately, hardly anybody remembers who has come from here, who has been inspired by living here, or been influenced by any MN by any means. The institution will act as a memorial, on top of inspiring and motivating our local community to do great things and give back to their community.

Why do you think people will recognize or remember your idea after it comes to life? How might it inspire others to do something similar in their community? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

In order to keep things a float, the institution will have to get buy in from its celebratory supporters. The institution will need to sale advertising for their events, get sponsorships from local companies, ticket sales, volunteer, etc. But keep in mind this is still a non-profit.
