IDEA Competition partners inducted Glen and Dennis Brazier into the IDEA Hall of Fame on May 17th. They are awarded for their accomplishments in the founding of Mattracks and Central Boiler, respectively.

The IDEA Hall of Fame was instituted in 2009 by IDEA Competition partners to recognize and honor the accomplishments of the region’s legacy innovators—those within the region who have inspired others with their entrepreneurial vision, leadership and achievement.  The IDEA Hall of Fame includes two other inductees: Andy Wells of Wells Technology in Bemidji, and Edgar Hetteen, founder of Polaris and Arctic Cat.
