Small independent businesses within our neighborhoods provide a vitality to the area and create many of the public spaces where we gather. They are an essential component of what makes Southwest Minneapolis such a great place to live, work and play. The Southwest Business  Association is a local non-profit founded and run by volunteers who live right here in the neighborhoods of Southwest Minneapolis. Funds contributed to the Southwest Business Association go directly to help small independent businesses open shop in our communities, improve their storefronts, create inviting gathering spaces that we all enjoy and, help the city create thoughtful structure that supports local community connections and business growth.
