Fueling Minnesota’s small business explosion | Business

Governor Walz and DEED Commissioner Grove earlier this month had lunch at Afro Deli in St. Paul to highlight Minnesota’s diverse restaurant industry. Later, they visited Clam Corporation in Rogers to celebrate Minnesota’s $2.4 billion fishing industry in advance of the Governor’s Fishing Opener May 13 and 14 

On the heels of securing a bipartisan agreement and signing a bill to provide relief to small business owners across the state, Governor Walz proclaimed Small Business Week in the state, saying , “Our small businesses are the heart of communities across the state and are driving our economic recovery, I’m proud of our bipartisan bill to provide relief to small business owners, and with our state’s historic budget surplus, we have an opportunity to continue to invest in our small businesses that move Minnesota forward.”

“Minnesota new business starts are exploding in 2022 as entrepreneurs see new opportunity in our economy,” said Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) Commissioner Steve Grove. “There’s no better way to get them off to a great start than to invest in the incentives and workforce supports that the Governor’s budget proposes this legislative session.”
