Minnesota is a world leader in health care. The state is frequently ranked as one the healthiest in the USA, and is a global center of excellence in medicine, wellness, and healthcare innovation. Nine Fortune 500 companies operating in the health, nutrition, medical technology, and wellness sectors are based in Minnesota and there are more than 250,000 workers in the health care sector, including those at the globally respected Mayo Clinic, Medtronic, 3M, and UnitedHealth Group.
Minnesota has the experience and infrastructure required to host an Expo. Our world-class hospitality resources and transportation infrastructure are well tested through international events and attractions like the Super Bowl and the Ryder Cup. Each year we host 2 million attendees at the Minnesota State Fair and more than 43 million visitors at the Mall of America.
Doing Business in Minnesota
Minnesota has everything business needs to prosper. A low rate of unemployment, good public schools and many options for higher education (including the University of Minnesota) mean an educated, skilled workforce.
Companies from nearly every U.S. industry provide the local economy with a strong, diverse base, representing manufacturing, health care, publishing and many others. Wide-reaching public facilities and investment in transportation and infrastructure fuel the growth of local companies’ headquarters.
And business is good for the people who live here. Our companies, both big and small, have a tradition of giving back to the communities that help them succeed. Private funding and corporate philanthropy help keep Minnesota vibrant and exciting.
