BR&E Tools


Retaining and Expanding Business in Your Community

The University of Minnesota Extension Business Retention & Expansion (BR&E) Program offers a time-tested, community involvement approach that builds consensus and moves communities toward projects that keep business close to home. Community groups and economic development professionals will find these videos useful for considering BR&E methods and for implementing the BR&E Program in rural, suburban or urban communities. Watch the 18 minute version for the most detailed insights but the shorter versions are good for sharing with colleagues and officials who you need to support your BR&E efforts.
