"I admire studio503 because it recognizes an overlooked fundamental in business: the power of partnerships. Most leaders are too competitive to see where the right partners—even competitors—can take them, but founder Michael Walters gets it. It is through his strategic vision and partnerships that he landed at number #43 in the 2021 Inc. 5000, and #1 in the State of Minnesota. When you understand today’s business landscape like Michael does, you understand the power of partnership, which in his case means the savvy and skill to activate not just a handful of staffers but the very best teams around the world to achieve goals."

"After working with Michael and his team for over 10 years, they have proven to go above and beyond my expectations to help our brand exposure grow and sales increase despite the ups and downs of the economy. Working quietly behind the scenes, networking with endemic companies in a synergy that flat-out benefits all parties involved - they help make things happen that we would never have thought of. I can’t wait to see what they do next….always surprising me with the next great idea backed up with proven results. Thank you Studio503! We are better because of your mission to make a difference."

Disruption with Purpose


For some, increased daily and prolonged use of traditional hand sanitizers can dry out and create sore hands, especially with children. With a coalition of partner businesses, truth™ was born to provide safe, non-alcohol based hand sanitizer and hand soap alternatives. Not only does truth™ have the same germ-killing efficacy as it’s alcohol-based predecessors, it also provides a protective barrier on skin after application.
