Bethel University Trustee and graduate Troy Kopischke was recently honored with the “Impact Entrepreneur Award” by the Minnesota chapter of the Entrepreneur’s Organization. Kopischke, a 1997 physics and engineering graduate, is the co-founder and co-CEO of Invenshure, a startup company that matches science and intellectual property ideas with business “to make a material difference in people's lives.”
A panel of judges selected four finalists and then chose Kopischke as the award recipient. The judges were: Glenda Amar, EO Minnesota chapter administrator; Kevin Burkart, area director for EO Minnesota and president of Savage-based StepStoneGroup Inc., Dirk DeYoung, editor of Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal; Aparna Katre, assistant professor of cultural entrepreneurship at University of Minnesota—Duluth; and Willie Monteiro, CEO of Flextech Inc.
