Economic development occurs when passionate business owners collaborate with partnering agencies and community organizations. Ramsey County Community & Economic Development is demonstrating a commitment to entrepreneurs and existing businesses wishing to expand with the launch of the “Ramsey County Means Business" incentives dashboard and business resource portal. 

This online resource consolidates local, state and regional incentives and resources for existing and future businesses. By offering a powerful, easy-to-use online portal, Ramsey County economic developers and partnering agencies are committing to vibrant business growth. 

RamseyCountyMeansBusiness.com is an opportunity for economic development leaders across the region to better engage and equip our business community with the sites and resources available,” said Kari Collins, Community & Economic Development director. “The new business interface not only showcases all of the business opportunities in Ramsey County, but it directs site selectors and developers to information quickly.” 

To design, build and launch the online business resource, Ramsey County partnered with Golden Shovel Agency. With over 10 years of economic development experience and leadership, their expertise and technology platform provided an efficient process and smooth launch of the online portal. 

“I applaud the leaders at Ramsey County for their vision and dedication to business growth for the region,” said Aaron Brossoit, CEO of Golden Shovel Agency. “This collaborative incentives dashboard will engage all business owners. This type of forward-thinking sets Ramsey County apart from many communities.”

Ramsey County leaders believe this is just the beginning of interactive offerings for businesses in the region. Discussion to cross-promote efforts and ensure access to a wider audience in all the communities is already in progress. 

"Ramsey County deserves real credit for this significant investment in a resource that benefits the business community," said B Kyle, President of the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce. "Economic development is critical to the success of the region, and this tool both organizes our resources and highlights the real opportunities businesses have here."
