Economic Development In Mayville-Portland

Success in business has a lot to do with where you put down roots. Our workforce is well-educated, displaying a work ethic that other regions in the United States acknowledge as the gold standard. Our largest employers work in education and health care, but that doesn’t mean our growing list of manufacturers and retailers don’t appreciate Mayville-Portland’s positive business climate just as much. Our community was founded on agriculture, of course, but that is only a small part of our focus. Farming simply provides an economic base for a flourishing ecosystem of economic development that leverages financial incentives, technology and training partnerships to support new and expanding businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Here are the biggest reasons businesses thrive in Mayville-Portland:

  • Well-educated, self-motivated workforce
  • Cutting edge technology infrastructure
  • Partnerships with Mayville State University, a strong training partner and the first Tablet PC University in the United States
  • Powerful, unique financial incentives from the Mayville-Portland Economic Development Corporation
