In North Dakota, our economy is booming and providing new opportunities to both job seekers and businesses every day. With one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation, we have many wonderful opportunities available whether you are looking to start your own business or jump-start your current business.

North Dakota works hard to assist existing business through many of the same programs used to attract new businesses. The Manufacturing Extension Partnership, for instance, assists manufacturers to help them become more competitive; other programs and incentives are available to assist in efforts to expand or continue your operations.

Business development staff is available to assist all primary sector businesses, whether new or existing, especially those related to our target industries. Local development staff in communities throughout the state also pursue business retention and expansion activities. 

Business incentives, government accessibility, and workforce performance, combined with North Dakota's favorable position as one of the lowest cost states for operating a business, are driving top companies to establish operations in North Dakota.
