What makes North Dakota’s business environment unique?

“North Dakota businesses are second to none, not only is it easy to start a business in North Dakota, it is business friendly. North Dakota officials are easily accessible and often go the extra mile to help assist businesses.”
Ken Callahan • Energy Services Manager, Montana-Dakota Utilities

“There is a high level of collaboration among community stakeholders along with engaged and accessible leadership at state and federal levels that positively impacts our ability to attract and retain private sector businesses.”
Klaus Thiessen • President/CEO, Grand Forks Region Economic Development

“North Dakota is thriving. Our business environment includes a highly trained workforce, world-class education and research facilities and a friendly business climate that offers several tax credits for local business. Further, our businesses in the eastern side of the state are working to meet the needs created by the oil boom in western North Dakota.”
Craig Whitney • President & CEO, Greater West Fargo Moorhead Chamber of Commerce

“Local, state and federal agency representatives are sensitive to the urgency of the housing and infrastructure needs and respond in a timely fashion to developers within protocol and code mandates, but without undue impediment which allows the entire process to move faster.”
Terry Metzler • North Dakota Operations Manager, Granite Peak Construction

“We have a proactive business climate and a conservative, responsive legislature.   This combined with an overall pragmatic approach to regulation allows us to serve the public interest while simultaneously working closely with businesses in a true spirit of “win win”.   We enjoy minimal impact from the national recession.”
Tom Rolfstad • Director, Williston Economic Development

“What doesn’t make our environment unique? I’ve only been in this region for a month, and I know firsthand that the kind of business activity and growth that western ND is experiencing is unparalleled in the rest of the country right now. What a blessing!”
Cooper Whitman • Executive Director, Dickinson Area Chamber of Commerce
