Alumni and friends, join us for an opportunity to go Behind the Scenes at WOODCHUCK USA
, an alumni-owned business since 2012. Owners Ben VandenWymelenberg and John Guenveur are both 2012 graduates from the U of M.
You'll not only hear WOODCHUCK USA's story and see some one-of-a-kind U-themed products being created right in their factory, but enjoy food from MyBurger and beverages from Fulton Brewery, as well as receive a special WOODCHUCK gift.
WOODCHUCK USA started as an idea and quickly moved to an entrepreneurial venture with a simple mission; put nature back into peoples' lives. To further that mission, a tree is planted for every product purchased, making you part of a community reforesting the world. Learn more about Buy One Plant One
WOODCHUCK has a great relationship with the University of Minnesota and is featured in our Minnesota Alumni Market
. During this event, you will get a chance to hear their story, learn about scaling your business, take a tour of their forestry office and wood processing factory used to create their products, and witness some one-of-a-kind U of M themed material being created.
