Innovate State, With Colby Cartledge

February 24, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST

Innovate State is a collaboration between the Burgess Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation and the MSU Innovation Center.

Hosted in the Gaynor Entrepreneurship Lab, Innovate State welcomes successful Spartan alumni back to campus for a fireside chat. Guests share their perspectives on everything from launching start-ups to experiencing success and failure to building dynamic and nurturing work cultures.


Colby Cartledge currently works for Target as a Lead Business Designer on the New Ventures + Accelerators Team, where she helps derisk speculative opportunities for the organization. Colby received her B.A. in Supply Chain Management and Management of Information Systems at the University of Texas at Austin in 2011 and her M.S. in Management, Strategy, and Leadership from Michigan State University in 2016. She currently resides in Minneapolis, MN with her wife and many pets. Outside of work, she enjoys rowing and modern quilting.



Every year, Innovate State invites Spartan entrepreneurs, innovators, and disruptors to join our community for a fireside chat. In these 60-minute interviews, guests share their perspectives on everything from business to family life; the hard knocks of the hustle to maintaining work/life balance. These are stories of success, stories of failure, and stories of uncommon will.

Innovate State is proudly brought to you by the Burgess Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation in collaboration with the MSU Innovation Center and MSU Alumni Office. Innovate State kicks-off at 6 p.m. (ET) and are free to the community. Events will be held via Zoom. Early registration is highly encouraged.
