Every October that spirit of innovation shines through during Twin Cities Startup Week. In little more than five years, this celebration of our community has turned into one of the largest startup festivals in the country—championing new ideas and the people who power them.
Each month, GREATER MSP will release an overview of key economic indicators for the Greater MSP region. This provides a quick, but comprehensive, snapshot at how the region’s economy is performing. It includes data about employment, unemployment, strength of major industries, wages, and job postings.
While the Greater MSP region has emerged as the startup capital of the North, partners seek to compete globally by increasing business formation and startup growth.
Since 2014, the GREATER MSP Partnership has measured our performance against 11 peer regions on a range of economic indicators. Not surprisingly, five-year trends from the Regional Indicators Dashboard show that our economy may be reaching the top of its lifecycle.
The Greater MSP region’s economy thrives because of our investors and we’re proud to welcome these 11 companies as new investors.

The interns came from 21 employers, including Best Buy, Target, General Mills, Medtronic, Xcel Energy, Thrivent Financial and Ecolab.
The Greater Minneapolis-Saint Paul Economic Development Partnership (GREATER MSP) is thrilled to welcome Amanda Taylor as Director of Research and Daniel Sopdie as Regional Strategy Manager. Both start in their new roles on Monday, June 25.
Companies that pay attention to their social, environmental and governance performance will be rewarded – both today and tomorrow. Find out why.
