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 18th Year of the Entrepreneurs House. The house is located at 3656 Emerson Av. N. 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 up to 8 employees to work on the house for one full day (9 am to 3 pm) during the 6 week period from July 20 – August 28, 2020.

This year, the the task will be framing a new home and completing exterior work. There are additional safety protocols in place this year due to COVID and to keep everyone safe. We will be allowed a max of 8 volunteers to provide space for proper social distancing. Volunteer hours are shortened to 9am – 3pm to allow for proper disinfecting of tools and surfaces. PPE masks are required at all times and gloves will be required in certain circumstances. 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.
