What does it take to become one of the world’s top businesswomen? Students at Minneapolis Public Schools got first-hand lessons Thursday.

About 75 Minneapolis Public Schools top performing young women went to an outreach event with Minnesota entrepreneurs Thursday. The idea is to inspire the juniors and seniors so someday they may be able to work in a business setting like Target Headquarters.

The event was hosted by the school district and the Committee of 200, an organization comprised of the world’s top businesswomen.

Watch an extended interview with committee member Jennifer Smith here.
