Enterprise Minnesota

Enterprise Minnesota, a large Minnesota-based non-profit consultancy for manufacturing strategies, has experienced a remarkable turnaround from being a state-funded organization to being a stand-alone funded by fees for service.

Mason Public Affairs has been a proud public affairs vendor to Enterprise Minnesota for 10 years through several projects.


The State of Manufacturing®

Mason Public Affairs conceived and has helped implement a major survey research project for Enterprise Minnesota in which a major national pollster annually surveys manufacturing executives in Minnesota about their challenges and opportunities. Mason Public Affairs has conducted more than 100 focus groups all across Minnesota for the life of the poll. We publish the results each year in book that is distributed to 2500 of Enterprise Minnesota’s key audiences.

Enterprise Minnesota’s flawless execution of the complementary “rollout” activities has enabled it to establish extensive and exclusive partnerships with Minnesota’s manufacturing community. The primary rollout at the Minneapolis Convention Center has attracted as many as 500 attendees. In addition, Enterprise Minnesota annual hosts more than a dozen regional rollout events statewide, all cosponsored by corporate partners.


Mason Public Affairs produces a slick business magazine devoted to manufacturing.
