About Devi James

Owner, Minnesota Demolition Company

Women Venture’s 2020 Expanding Business Award winner Devi James founded Minnesota Demolition in 2019. Devi has also owned sister company Scrapbusters since 2012, growing the enterprise from two to 20 employees.

A native of Guyana, where her great-grandparents emigrated as indentured servants from India, Devi moved to the United States when she was 17 years old.  After completing her business degree at St. Thomas, Devi worked for a few years in real estate accounting, until the opportunity to purchase Scrapbusters arose in 2012.

Since then, Devi has grown both Scrapbusters and Minnesota Demolition, earning both businesses strong reputations as great companies to work with and work for. Today, Minnesota Demolition offers mechanical and general demolition services to commercial property owners across the Twin Cities metro area.
