Open To Business

Open To Business is a partnership between Golden Valley and New Hope and the Metropolitan Consortium of Community Developers (MCCD), an association of nonprofit community development organizations serving the Twin Cities. With the help of a matching grant from Hennepin County, the two cities will work with MCCD to provide business consultation services and financial advice to small local business owners and aspiring business owners. The program will offer help in several areas, including:

Open To Business participants will be able to meet with advisors at the MCCD offices to get the ball rolling.
MCCD staff will also hold open office hours each month starting in June 2012 at either the New Hope or
Golden Valley city halls to meet with participants one‐on‐one.
