What Business Really Means to Minnesota
Member companies of the Minnesota Business Partnership employ 400,000 people in our state, nearly 3 million around the world, and pay billions of dollars in local, state and federal taxes each year. But that isn’t all they do. For as long as Minnesota has been a state, our largest employers and their workers have recognized that building strong communities goes hand-in-hand with building strong companies. Corporate philanthropy, personal giving and company-sponsored volunteerism combine to make the charitable contributions of Minnesota’s business sector some of largest and most effective in the United States.
We will examine some of the ways businesses have made Minnesota the place it is, and contribute to our state’s tremendous quality of life—why Minnesota is truly one of the best places to live, work and raise a family.
