Twin Cities Entrepreneurs House
The house is a community service project for the Twin Cities entrepreneurial community. A group of companies, investment firms and other businesses that serve the entrepreneurial community are coming together to build a house as a part of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. The project allows for a valuable team-building experience for your employees, while also providing this important community contribution.
This year will be the 20th Year of the Entrepreneurs House. The house is located at 4108 Standish Av. S. in Minneapolis.
Our group is seeking to involve 20 or more companies to volunteer on site as well as raise $160,000 for the project. Each volunteering company brings a team of employees to work on the house for one full day during the summer.

There are additional safety protocols in place due to COVID and to keep everyone safe. We will allow a max of 15 volunteers daily to provide space for social distancing when possible. Volunteer hours are 8:30am – 3:30pm to allow time for proper disinfecting of tools and surfaces. All volunteers must indicate when registering to build that they have either been vaccinated or have tested negative for COVID-19 within 48 hours of each time on site. Volunteers are not required to bring proof of vaccination or negative test. Masks are optional for staff and volunteers. Handwashing stations will be on site for use throughout the day.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is an international non-profit organization that builds homes for low income families. Habitat’s approach is oriented toward helping those less fortunate families to help themselves by building homes with volunteer labor and then selling the homes to the families at an affordable cost and mortgage terms. Habitat is a Christian-based organization, drawing its fundamental tenets from the biblical principles of serving the poor and making no profit on the sale of homes to families in need. Supporters of Habitat include large numbers of individuals, businesses, congregations and other organizations.
This is not a solicitation to sell securities. Any contributions should be made directly to Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity which is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation.
