Minneapolis: Business Made Simple
In her 2014 State of the City address, Mayor Betsy Hodges announced a new initiative aimed at streamlining and simplifying the process for business owners looking to invest in Minneapolis. While Minneapolis is a great place to start and run a business, Mayor Hodges knew that sometimes obsolete or unnecessary regulations can get in the way of opening or expanding a successful business. She asked City Attorney Susan Segal to take a close look at all of the City’s business regulations to find ways to make Minneapolis even better for businesses to start and grow.
Mayor Hodges and Susan Segal hosted several listening sessions throughout the city with more than 40 business owners and entrepreneurs to hear their experiences and suggestions, and gather feedback. Combined with months Segal spent reviewing the City’s regulations and ordinances, she developed a set of initial recommendations focused on reducing barriers for business owners looking to invest in Minneapolis. Mayor Hodges announced these initial recommendations in her 2015 State of the City address.
