Sector: Collective

Organization Mission:

Objective: Pursue Targeted Employment Growth Data shows that the vast majority of new jobs in any region are created by existing firms. In Southeastern Minnesota, a significant portion of those new jobs are created by the Mayo Clinic, the largest private employer in Minnesota. While our region can leverage Mayo’s size and influence in creating jobs beyond healthcare, we also will benefit from a focused effort to stimulate growth in other targeted business sectors. These business sectors represent the most important existing and the most promising emerging business opportunities for our region. They are:

    Site Information
    Beam
    • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
    • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
    • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

    While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

    This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

    Definitions
    The following defines the various project phases:
    1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
    2. Develop - program or application is being developed
    3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
    4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
      demonstration
    5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
