Supporting Entrepreneurial Activity
SMIF works to catalyze entrepreneurial activity within the region and has played a strong role in growing local business by supporting entrepreneurship. We have provided early-stage investments, traditional loans, micro loans, technical assistance, mentoring and regional leadership to achieve our vision of creating economic prosperity and community vitality.
Southern Minnesota has a rich heritage of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship in the private sector. We believe this region’s future, like the past, will be built by people who have this entrepreneurial spirit combined with the skills and commitment that go with it.
