Blog: MN Independent School Forum

11/4/2010 I spoke at the Minnesota Independent School Forum STEM Teachers Conference at the Science Museum of Minnesota (SMM).  I was delighted to be on the bill with SMM Executive Director, and ROCK STAR Dr. Eric Jolly.  That is always a pleasure.

My message to them was:

  • High tech companies need well-prepared scientists and engineers who are:
    • Technically competent
    • Communicate excellently in writing and speech
    • Possess a teamwork mentality
  • We know there are challenges ahead of us as 40% of engineering talent retires over the next 10 years
  • Thomas L. Freidman:  NASA motivated baby-boomers, green-tech & global work need to motivate next generation
  • We’re eager to work with you and cross “cultural” boundaries
    • Use tools like MHTA’s get stem www.getstem-mn
    • Become a “contact curator”

Adventium Enterprises and Adventium Labs Ownership and Leadership Changes

Adventium Labs and Adventium Enterprises announced a transition in ownership and leadership today. Founder and CEO, Bonnie Holub is stepping away from Adventium Labs, a research lab she started with co-founder Brian Isle. Mr. Isle will assume the role of CEO of Adventium Labs. In addition, Dr. Holub sold her majority ownership interest in Adventium Enterprises to a group of long-time employees: Dr. Mark Boddy, Mr. Todd Carpenter, Dr. Tom Haigh, and Mr. Kyle Nelson. “Our goal from the start was to build a company that attracts top quality engineers. There is no greater statement of our success than this: they believe in the company enough to want to buy it. We are excited about the transition,” said Holub.

Mr. Kyle Nelson, Director of Research, will assume the role of CEO of Adventium Enterprises. “Adventium Enterprises is in a very good position today because of the efforts of Brian, Bonnie, and all of the employees, I am looking forward to building on this success”, said Mr. Nelson. These transitions take effect immediately. Terms of the sale were not disclosed.
