What is MetroIBA?
We help local and independent businesses thrive so our economy will, too.
MetroIBA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting locally owned, independent businesses in the Twin Cities region. Our mission is to help the Twin Cities maintain its unique community character, provide continuing opportunities for entrepreneurs, build economic strength, and create an environment where locally owned, independent businesses grow and flourish.
Research shows that, on average, every dollar spent at a local, independent business generates at least three times more direct economic benefit than a dollar spent at absentee-owned formula businesses. Through marketing, education, and advocacy, MetroIBA is working to preserve the independent businesses that help the Twin Cities maintain its unique character and economic strength.
