Vesterheim is excited to pair the Innovators & Inventors exhibit with a free lecture series that will bring together some of the most creative and inspiring Norwegian-American leaders, thinkers, and artists working in the Norwegian-American community today.
You wouldn’t host a party without inviting the guests. Yet that’s how many people approach creative thinking: They just hope “aha!” moments show up. A learning session with Dr. Stamp is like a thrill ride for your brain, with exciting twists and turns that lead you, unexpectedly, to “aha!” moments you can use for a lifetime.
Dr. Jeffrey Stamp is a Teaching Professor of Entrepreneurship in the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Stamp teaches courses in creativity, concept design, sales, strategic leadership, and entrepreneurial thinking skills to students from 14 different majors across campus.

Lays ® Potato Crisps, for PepsiCo’s snack division, Frito-Lay. Dr. Stamp has won a coveted Edison Award silver medal for the Food and Beverage Category and was awarded the “George Land World-Class Innovator Award” from the Innovation Network and Fast Company magazine.
