Small Business Success Stories
Meanwhile, the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area earned a “B+” for small business friendliness in the just-released study, compiled by online service Thumbtack.com in partnership with the Kauffman Foundation.
The local airport was among just 15 U.S. airports to make the list, which was compiled by airline and airport review organization Skytrax.
Patterson, Apogee Enterprises, and Hawkins were recognized by Forbes alongside 97 others that have “consistently demonstrated transparent and conservative accounting practices and solid corporate governance and management.”
Ecolab, H.B. Fuller, The Mosaic Company, Target, and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans are among 145 companies named to the Ethisphere Institute’s 2013 “World’s Most Ethical Companies” list.
The same Minnesotans who were on last year’s list made repeat appearances this year, although the net worth of most has risen—and Best Buy founder Richard Schulze is no longer listed as a Minnesotan.
3M Company, Target Corporation, and St. Jude Medical also made the list last year.
Minneapolis-based Target ranked 10th, and Edina-based ReconRobotics and three other robotics companies collectively ranked 44th.
Anytime Fitness and Code 42 Software were recognized as two of the top 100 privately held, high-growth businesses.
The Minnesota Twins, Bremer Bank, Graco, and Mortenson Construction were among the local companies that made the list, which was compiled by employee survey firm, WorkplaceDynamics.
Others that made the list include The Saint Paul Hotel, Hotel Ivy, and The Westin Edina Galleria.
