They conduct confidential, comprehensive one-on-one site visits with nearly a thousand businesses each year, tracking on-the-ground business conditions, collecting data on what it takes for businesses to stay and grow in Minnesota, and identifying areas where they can provide solutions to business concerns. And they develop impactful initiatives to address our state’s most pressing business challenges, helping businesses understand how to stay and grow in their community.
