Financing Options

According to the MN State DEED office, the following is a definition of “Angel Tax Credits”:

“Minnesota’s Angel Tax Credit provides a 25-percent credit to investors or investment funds that put money into startup companies focused on high technology, new proprietary technology, or a new proprietary product, process or service in specified fields. The maximum credit is $125,000 per person, per year ($250,000 if filing jointly). The credit is refundable. Residents of other states and foreign countries are eligible.” As we work with a wide variety of business owners and industry types, we thought this may be of interest to some of our readers as there has been a little bit of buzz in the news about the topic.

Development in the News

Twin Cities Business Magazine has focused several articles on the the local Twin Cities metro area and discussed the importance of not only bringing in new businesses from outside of the metro area, but helping to retain the existing businesses and working with them to expand their business in place. Our team has been able to work with many companies recently to do that very thing! Menasha, BTD, and Mendell, among others have decided to stay local and construct expansions to their existing buildings.
