Open to business

Construction of the Southwest Light Rail Transit line brings both opportunities and challenges to businesses in the corridor. Once complete, it will connect customers, employees and investment to area businesses. But, construction can also create challenges for businesses in the interim.

To help local businesses prepare for future opportunities while meeting the immediate challenges of construction, Hennepin County and corridor cities have partnered with the Open to Business program to provide Southwest Corridor businesses technical assistance and business consulting free of charge.

If you're in need of a trusted business advisor, want help obtaining funding or financing, or could simply use some sound advice, Open to Business provides free, confidential business services to current and prospective entrepreneurs and small businesses.
