StarTribune: Med-tech partnership promotes Minnesota as a place to do business

Rochester’s med-tech business community is getting a national boost.

Earlier this week, Greater MSP – an economic development agency in the Twin Cities – announced the Minnesota Medical Manufacturing Partnership, giving medical manufacturers working in Rochester and in Minnesota access to federal agencies that coordinate $1 billion in economic development assistance.

Rochester is in one of 24 regions selected by the federal government as part of a nationwide effort to reignite manufacturing.

Destination Medical Center Executive Director Lisa Clarke said the partnership will help transform Rochester’s med-tech community in the Discovery Square Subdistrict and our region.

“A big part of the DMC’s vision is to draw med-tech innovators to Rochester, and to support entrepreneurs already working here,” Clarke said. “We are thrilled that our region will be part of the federal government’s efforts to promote the resurgence of manufacturing in communities nationwide.”
