Why the Midwest?
Based in Minnesota, we focus on the area of the Midwest to capitalize on the opportunities in the region. Known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Minnesota has abundant natural resources and an equally vast private sector. With an average quality of life ranked higher than larger states like California or New York, one of the best-educated workforces in the USA, in addition to being home to almost 20 Fortune 500 companies, Minnesota is a dynamic center of both commerce and culture.
We empower people from diverse backgrounds to participate in economic opportunities and acknowledge their valuable contributions to the world's economy
Our Commitment to Sustainability
As a public benefit corporation, we follow the hybrid business model that bridges the non-profit public benefit aspects in a for-profit enterprise. This model of business incorporates our mission of stimulating and facilitating trade among the Americas, intended to create economic opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurs, as well as startups. We believe that by enabling trade among businesses of all sizes we will achieve a more inclusive economy. This will have a lasting impact on the communities where those economic opportunities are created.
The efficacy of our business model relies on the enhancement of a socially responsible commitment to corporate socially responsible practices and the creation of a public benefit, as well as accountability, transparency, and stakeholder engagement. This goes hand in hand with our commitment to sustainability, which has been acknowledged by the UN as a paradigm for the twenty-first century (OECD, 2016; UN, 2015) that calls for business to serve society.
The collaboration of our members and partners will create economic development across the Americas: this is the future of a sustainable and inclusive economy.
