A broad-based regional partnership has hired TIP Strategies to develop the Minneapolis–Saint Paul Economic Development Action Strategy. The primary goal of this work is to create a strategy with short and medium-term actions to accelerate investment and job creation in the region’s core cities.
Though the work will be guided by economic development principles, it will also integrate strategies with community and workforce development to ensure that market-challenged areas and lower-skilled workers also benefit.
The project partners include Greater MSP, the City of Minneapolis, the City of Saint Paul, the Saint Paul Port Authority, Hennepin County, Ramsey County, Minneapolis Regional Chamber of Commerce, Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce, and Minnesota Philanthropy Partners.
