The mission of the Greater Mankato Growth Ambassadors is to be the greeting arm of Greater Mankato Growth to promote the community and encourage expansion of established businesses and the development of new businesses in Greater Mankato.

Each month the Ambassadors make visits to businesses in the Greater Mankato region who are new to the area, move to a new location, have a major reinvestment in their property, or are holding a celebration event (ground-breaking, anniversary, etc). If you are a new business and or an existing business who would like to schedule a visit with the Ambassadors please email us or call 507.385.6640.
