Greater MSP

The mission of the GREATER MSP Partnership is to accelerate regional competitiveness and inclusive economic growth through job creation, capital investment and execution of strategic initiatives. Though their focus is more broad than technology and limited to the metro area, Their Regional Indicators Dashboard is of great value to everyone. It is a set of shared metrics that tracks the region’s change on critical economic, environmental, and social outcomes. Measuring change in the areas that matter most for continued long-term success will help improve our region’s economic competitiveness.
