Become a Minnesota Alumni Maker

As a graduate of the University of Minnesota, you are invited to submit your products for consideration to our online store: Minnesota Alumni Market, where all of the products are made by Minnesota alumni owned businesses and marketed to fellow alumni and friends.

In this store, you will find a variety of products that are made by University of Minnesota alumni owned businesses. We are happy to consider any item, but are currently not able to support healthcare items, books and services. Items can be generic in nature or customized to include school colors or other branding that may have appeal to fellow alumni. All branding must be through a licensed vendor. 

Through this site we aim to:

  1. Make alumni & friends aware of University of Minnesota alumni-owned businesses

  2. Create a new marketing channel for alumni-owned-businesses

  3. Connect alumni sellers and shoppers

  4. Promote business relationships between alumni

  5. Help launch new alumni businesses

  6. Generate revenue for the University of Minnesota Alumni Association

Our product team is currently reviewing products made/sold by Minnesota alumni for the store. To submit products for review, please complete our application form and we will follow up with you.
