Local business executive Andrew Herr will share how he went “from intern to executive” and “turned an idea into a multi-million dollar enterprise” on Wednesday, Jan. 18 in a 4:15-5:15 p.m. interview and audience Q&A at the South Central Service Cooperative Conference Center (2075 Lookout Drive) in North Mankato.

The event, presented as the latest event in the South Central Small Business Development Center’s “Behind the Success” speaker series, is intended for entrepreneurs, both new and experienced. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required, and seating is limited.

According to a short provided biography, Herr started his career as an intern at a food and agricultural company and later pitched an idea for a pet food ingredient company that eventually evolved into a multi-million dollar enterprise. Herr is currently an executive at Taylor Holdings and is transitioning from CEO to entrepreneurial investor.
