Redstar's marketing un/academy offers a completely new way to learn about marketing. There are no lectures, textbooks or spreadsheets. We use thought-provoking content and real-world examples to inspire creativity and generate collaborative conversations between entrepreneurs and small business owners who want to harness the power of marketing. We bring over 30 years of marketing experience and a passion for collaboration to this unique set of programs that have positively impacted more than 160 small businesses since 2016.

our community

Over the past 7 years, our team has worked with over 160 entrepreneurs and small business owners in greater Minnesota. These incredible people are bravely taking chances on their dreams and giving back to their communities in powerful ways. They run what appear to be typical businesses... coffee shops, bakeries, consulting firms, retail stores, salons, restaurants... but are really agents for change. And we need these rebel entrepreneurs and changemakers now, more than ever.

Here's to you...
