This public-private partnership works together to develop a broad-based marketing initiative to promote Minnesota and its business economy at local, regional, and national venues.
Partnership members are eager to help your business with its growth, expansion, and retention needs.
As a Positively Minnesota marketing partner, you can leverage your marketing dollars and help increase Minnesota's visibility to site selectors and corporate real estate managers statewide, regionally and nationally.
You also increase your community's, organization's, or region's visibility by participating as a sponsor in the various events and activities offered throughout the year.
By attending the quarterly meetings and voicing your opinion, you can help shape Positively Minnesota marketing efforts to promote Minnesota's economic development.
If you are unable to actively participate in events or the quarterly meetings, your support is an extremely important part of ensuring Minnesota's marketing efforts continue.
Whether you're considering a business expansion or relocation or are just looking for more ways to market your Minnesota-based company, the Positively Minnesota Marketing Partners are available to answer your questions.
Partnership staff can help provide detailed information about Minnesota's business climate and put you in contact with appropriate partners. They can also arrange for you to meet our partners at industry and economic development conferences nationwide.
