The Twin Cities region is consistently ranked among the best places to do business in the United States. A diverse and highly educated workforce, a thriving business community and a network of some of the world’s most well-known companies helps to provide a robust ecosystem. Much more than flyover territory, the Twin Cities is home to 16 Fortune 500 Companies and 15 Forbes Global 2000 Companies. In 2015, CNBC named Minnesota as America’s Top State for Business citing our strong economy and great quality of life. This unparalleled quality of life attracts talent from all corners of the globe. Our low unemployment rates and education systems coupled with our strong cultural innovation is a consistent driver in creating a place where people want to be.
