About Gutter Punk Coffee

Gutter Punk Coffee is a mobile coffee cart and roaster that serves as a vehicle to provide employment training to youth experiencing homelessness. Our aim is to serve quality coffee to our customers, while simultaneously providing employment training and practical life skills to our employees.


What Happens at Popup Think Tank?

Step 1: Learn About the Mission

We'll take a few minutes to interview Carley and Ben of Gutter Punk Coffee to learn about their mission, vision, challenges, and opportunities.  


Step 2: Offer Ideas, Wisdom, and Connection

Our facilitator will help us unearth the good ideas that are deep inside of each of us. Whether you are someone with years of business strategy experience or simply believe in the power of youth, all are welcome to participate - and many are surprised at what they have to offer!


Step 3: Celebrate the Difference Makers

After the event we'll put the ideas in an eBook and send it to Gutter Punk Coffee and the event participants. As much as this event is about the ideas, it's also about celebrating those who are making a difference. Register today to see this process in action - and join in the creation of something our world needs. 



Building communities around difference makers.

Since 2013 we've hosted over 40 events for mission-driven leaders, startup non-profits, social enterprises, and innovative churches in the Twin Cities. Questions? Contact us.
