This year, the Luminaries Speakers Series will feature Craig Kielburger, co-founder of WE, a family of organizations that makes doing good, doable. Kielburger will speak to his experience as a humanitarian, activist and social entrepreneur at noon on Wednesday, October 10th at the Carlson School of Management's 3M Auditorium.

"We are very proud to present the Luminaries Speaker Series for the third year in conjunction with the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota," said Augeo CEO, David Kristal. "Our company continues to rapidly grow because we share a passion for innovative thinking. Craig Kielburger is definitely changing the way we organize around pro-social causes and his innovative thinking is another example of how a great idea when combined with meticulous execution can help change the world."

The Luminaries Speaker Series is hosted in conjunction with the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. The series is free, attracting attendees from a wide variety of backgrounds, industries and vocations. Past Luminaries speakers have included Antonio Gracias, founder of Valor Equity Partners who serves as a board member of Tesla, Inc. and trustee of the Aspen Institute.

"Augeo's products center around helping clients engage with customers, employees or members on a very human level," said Erik Sorenson, Augeo's Chief Product Officer.
