At the Kabara Institute, we bring together students, faculty, community members and entrepreneurs to innovate, develop and grow the entrepreneurial sprit.

Kabara hosts a guest speaker on campus once a month during the academic school year. From entrepreneurs to social advocates, our guest speakers pique the interest of students and allow them the opportunity to network with professionals. For a list of this year’s speaker topics and dates, visit our Events Page.
We would like to extend another thank you to our recent speakers! If you missed their talk and are interested in learning more about them and their business endeavors, click on the links below.
When students aren’t on campus pitching their ideas or enjoying our guest speakers, they are engaging in on-site visits to entrepreneurial ventures or competing in regional competitions.
Recently, students from SMUMN, WSU and MSC Southeast collaborated in the Winona Student Startup competition.
