Are you thinking of starting a small business but do not know where to start? Do you have an idea, but need a few pointers on where the best resources are? If you answered yes to these questions or just want to learn more about getting a business off the ground in Minnesota, then this is the class for you.

In this short and free introductory class, we will go over the basics of starting a business in Minnesota:

  • Different corporate structures
  • Writing a business plan
  • Information on free counseling from SBA partners and other free community resources
  • The five C’s of Credit
  • Financing options that are available
  • Exporting
  • Selling to the Government

We are pleased to announce the completion of our elevator renovation at the James J. Hill Center. This project was financed in part with funds provided by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society and the F. R. Bigelow Foundation. It will greatly increase our ability to serve patrons with accessibility needs.

Please access our ground floor elevator entrance via Kellogg Ave at the back of the building. Please ring the doorbell on the right hand side of door and a Hill staff member will assist you. If you have questions or concerns please call 651.265.5500. We look forward to having you visit our brand new elevator!
