Neela Mollgaard

Executive Director @ Launch Minnesota

My career has involved bringing people together to create change. I have been a leader and facilitator of organization and community innovation. Most recently, I was a founder of the nonprofit Red Wing Ignite, which supports entrepreneurs, businesses, and students to succeed in the 21st-century economy. We created a model, that received national attention, developing an innovative ecosystem by forging partnerships with government, academic, corporate, and community partners.

I am excited to serve Minnesota and build on what I’ve learned. Together, we will bring opportunity, access, and exposure to our innovation economy.
