Meet Peter Schultze, a 19-year-old local entrepreneur and 2016 White Bear Lake High School grad. At the age of 8, he started his first business selling magic trick kits and has since started several more; including a record label, a clothing company, a website design business, and now an internet marketing company.

By working with numerous local businesses throughout his high school years, Peter realized that there was a need for a transparent, cost-effective marketing service to help business owners reach today’s changing consumers. So what did he do? He started Dotbound.

Dotbound helps small businesses build their brands and drive sales through effective websites and online marketing. It’s free to sign up, there aren’t any upfront costs or contracts, and business owners can see exactly how their dollars are paying off.

Peter is now a student at the Carlson School of Management and runs the business out of his 500 square-foot apartment, working with chiropractors, attorneys, dentists, and other small businesses in the greater Twin Cities area. He was recently featured in the Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine and Fox 9 morning news.

Peter has assisted several VHEDC marketing initiatives, and we look forward to working with him in the future as he expands his business!  He just published an eBook to help small businesses with online marketing, called the “Small Business Marketing Blueprint” – which you can download for free here.
