The Regional Business Retention and Expansion Coordination Strategy (BR&E) strives to communicate and coordinate between multiple organizations. Together, the Region serves the business community by building relationships, collecting and sharing data, identifying opportunities and determining solutions. Working in partnership with multiple organizations, we increase business competitiveness in Greater MSP and positively impact capital investment and job growth.
A core function of the BR&E strategy involves meeting with business owners, CEOs, and top managers annually to build relationships and collect important information. Every organization may have a different reason to visit a business, however everyone can benefit from collecting information.
The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, the Department of Employment & Economic Development (DEED) and GREATER MSP are working together to identify key questions to ask organizations and companies.
