Who is the MN Business Alliance?

Business owners today face a multitude of challenges every day, from stifling regulations, to excessive taxes and fees. The goal of the Minnesota Business Alliance is to provide a unified voice for small business owners in order to improve Minnesota’s business climate.

In 2008 a small group of St. Paul businesses banded together to present their concerns about excessive regulation and taxes, both to City Hall and the State Legislature. Their goal was to educate policy makers about the hurdles and impediments to growth due to burdensome regulation and increasing taxes and fees. With improved communication and regular meeting; numerous changes have been made to City codes and regulation.

If policy makers better understand the daily challenges of small business owners, there is a greater opportunity to stream line rules and regulations and provide a friendlier working environment. If it can happen in St. Paul it can happen anywhere in the state.

Today the Minnesota Business Alliance operates state wide with the same principles it started with; “to provide a voice for small business owners to improve the business enimpevironment in Minnesota".
