Founder & CEO of Extreme Sandbox to Present at UMC

CROOKSTON, Minn. – Randy Stenger, is the Founder & CEO of Extreme Sandbox, a Heavy Equipment Adventure company that lets clients play on construction equipment. Stenger will present at the University of Minnesota Crookston on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, at 12:30 p.m. in the Peterson Classroom in Heritage Hall. A question and answer session will follow the presentation and light refreshments will be served. The event is free and all are welcome.

Founded in 2012, Extreme Sandbox has quickly vaulted to a national brand that is redefining the way entertainment is experienced. Stenger embraces outside of the box thinking, and specializes in creative ways to launch and grow a business at the lowest cost. His journey has made Extreme Sandbox a leader in experiential entertainment with multiple awards and recognition as a Top-Rated Attraction. His focus on guerrilla marketing has generated a lot of media buzz and ultimately led to his appearance on ABC’s hit TV show, Shark Tank, in January 2016.

Stenger has a diverse professional background. He earned his business management degree from University of Georgia, and worked as an EMT and Police Officer before transitioning to leadership and consulting roles at Target Corporation. He is passionate about not only providing his clients with “bucket list” experiences, but also inspiring other entrepreneurs to take the path less traveled. Ultimately, he discovered the key to success is to remain a kid at heart and never be afraid to get dirty in your sandbox.

The presentation by Stenger is sponsored by the Center for Rural Entrepreneurial Studies (CRES) and the University of Minnesota Crookston Business Department. It is part of an entrepreneurship speaker series. For more information, contact Rachel Lundbohm at 218-281-8190.
