Blu Dot CEO discusses Creative Economy April 15

Jon Christakos takes questions from MPR reporter Chris Farrell in St. Paul

By Alexander Fox

In our January 2015 issue, we showed how the fast-growing furniture maker Blu Dot dealt with its continual need for ever-more warehouse space. On April 15, the company’s co-founder and CEO Jon Christakos gives an early-morning interview to Minnesota Public Radio in St. Paul, with journalist Chris Farrell asking the questions. Taped for possible broadcast on MPR News, the discussion is part of the “Conversations on the Creative Economy” series, which explores how companies can nurture the innovation required to survive in a hyper-competitive global environment. Previous guests have included the CEOs of Ecolab, The Nerdery, and Buffalo Wild Wings. The public can enjoy breakfast and watch as the recording takes place.
