An Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership designated community.


Investing in the future of medical manufacturing.

The vision for the Minnesota Medical Manufacturing Partnership (MMMP) states the purpose for this forward-thinking initiative: This region will be the global leader in the manufacturing of medical technology in order to meet the world’s changing needs.


Minnesota is one of the world's largest medical device clusters, featuring top medical technology companies amid an environment of brilliant innovation. The MMMP region contains a rich ecosystem of talented professionals and academics who form a thriving establishment and have created numerous start-ups that spur the local economy. Read more about Minnesota's Medical Alley.

Minnesota Medical Manufacturing Strategy

MMMP has crafted a strategy to strengthen the ecosystem for entrepreneurship; globally brand and market Minnesota's medical and life sciences cluster; and optimize the regional talent-base via training and educational programs — all while maintaining and widening the region's competitive advantage in operational costs.
