In 2006, several legislators authored a bill that would have created the Minnesota Office of Entrepreneurship, to coordinate and support entrepreneurship development activities across the state. The bill (H.F. 3677) failed to pass but many people wanted to help get it passed next session, as a non-partisan effort that makes good sense for Minnesota’s economic development strategy, for rural and urban Minnesota alike.

Minnesota Rural Partners sponsored an ANALYSES on the PROPOSED LEGISLATION for the MINNESOTA COUNCIL ON ENTREPRENEURSHIP (finalfeasibilitygustavus) in reaction to that legislation.
