Ramsey County, MN Showcases Business Opportunities and Properties with Online Incentives Dashboard

Ramsey County leaders wanted to effectively communicate with site selectors and companies looking to relocate, providing them information on the ample incentives offered by the east metro. In order to gain the attention of site selectors and showcase their resources, they needed a strong online presence with a user-friendly tool. More importantly, they needed this online resource to be guided by national economic development experts.

Ramsey took this challenge and aggressively worked to address it by hiring Golden Shovel Agency to create an economic development portal, containing regional information and economic development tools. Within six months of contacting Golden Shovel Agency, Ramsey County Means Business was launched as an online business portal.

The business portal project, under the direction of Golden Shovel, includes an interactive map of nearly 60 properties available for development and redevelopment across the county. It also details incentives and clean-up programs that are availability at the local, state and federal levels that businesses can utilize to make Ramsey County an even more attractive place to do business.


Creation of a regional economic development portal that can be used by economic development professionals, site selectors, businesses and residents to advance economic development in the region.


Golden Shovel successfully launched the regional economic development website on time and on budget. The launch was featured in the Minneapolis Star Tribune article, “Ramsey County unveils website to attract companies” published on January 2, 2020.
