Small businesses provide the economic lifeblood for the communities we serve. These small firms generate the jobs and income that make an important difference families and neighborhoods throughout our metropolitan region.
MCCD has always been “open to business” because it does much to advance our community development goals. This term describes our on-going efforts to provide business advice and financing for emerging entrepreneurs. In 2013, through our partnerships with Hennepin County, Dakota County, the City of North St. Paul and the City of Minneapolis, we are providing our services to forty “Open to Business” communities in the Twin Cities area.
