Jason Vincent, Owner of The Boat Club and Vanilla Bean Restaurants

*Box Lunch Pick up and Virtual Presentation

2020 definitely made it difficult for Fuse Duluth to bring young professionals together through our programming however, that did not stop us from developing and growing through the challenges that faced us. In fact, 2020 pushed us to become even more innovative and adaptive. The Fuse Leadership Council is excited to have coordinated a full calendar of events for 2021, and we can’t wait to see you!

Please join us virtually for the first Ignite Your Fuse of 2021 featuring local restaurant owner, Jason Vincent of the Boat Club and Vanilla Bean restaurants. Jason will share his story of resilience and adaptation throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Attendees can safety tune into his presentation following a delicious box lunch pick up that they can enjoy from the comfort of their own home or office.

The event will include a chance to network with other local young professionals with a question led breakout session following the presentation. Don’t miss the chance to connect with our community, support a wonderful local business, and educate yourself on how you too, can adapt and reinvent yourself during difficult times.
