The North is different – it’s a place where ideas are nurtured, community is valued, opportunities are created, and problems aren’t just discussed – they’re worked on – and solved. See for yourself.

The Greater Minneapolis-Saint Paul region is a destination for problem solvers. We have major ambitions. To set big goals and monitor progress, Forge North coalition partners believe in consistently tracking our competitiveness.

We know that Minneapolis-Saint Paul is one of the country’s “top rising cities for startups” and the epicenter of innovation in the North. Where are we headed next?

Growing the entrepreneurial ecosystem takes engaged talent, ample capital, strong networks, great culture, helpful support from local institutions, a healthy business environment, and much more. But we need your help to decide what matters most.
