Mission

The mission of the Minnesota Business Partnership is to:

Maintain a high quality of life for all Minnesotans by ensuring that the state’s economy remains strong, globally competitive and its prospects for growth bright.

Since 1977, the Minnesota Business Partnership’s mission has been based on the firm belief that the quality of life for all Minnesotans is directly linked to our state’s economic health. As business leaders, we have a responsibility to protect and improve Minnesota’s economy and quality of life.

To pursue our mission, the Partnership works with elected officials, state agency staff and others on a range of public policy issues relevant to all Minnesotans: education, jobs and the economy, and health care. We offer specific recommendations intended to help government deliver services and benefits more efficiently and effectively. And we respond to other issues as they arise.

The nature of our membership — more than 110 chief executives from Minnesota’s largest employers — dictates that the Partnership be a nonpartisan organization. We take a stand on issues. But our focus is on progress, not partisan politics.

While the Partnership is active at the State Capitol, we believe that the solutions to Minnesota’s social and economic concerns are not always found in the halls of the State Capitol. The best solutions are often found in our communities, our companies, our families and ourselves. So we also work with organizations outside the Capitol on a variety of initiatives that will strengthen our economy and improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans.
