Grow MN Advisory Team
Grow MN is a MN Chamber program that the North 65 Chamber of Commerce participates in. The purpose of the Advisory Team is to communicate regularly with businesses and encourage them to grow & stay here. We do this by conducting regular retention activities, including visits and surveys. Company visits often reveal a need for assistance with business expansion, local or state government or the company’s general operations, and Grow Minnesota! representatives either provide that assistance directly or refer the company to the appropriate public or private sector organization.
