"Generally, the Minnesota Innovation Institute was created to provide flexible, cost-effective training for companies looking for people in the manufacturing area in particular," said Dave Hengel, director of the economic development organization Greater Bemidji.
Hengel said the investments, which total $662,302, is an effort to increase the size and talent of the local workforce.
"They (the grants) are all in response to the same thing. About three years ago, Greater Bemidji gathered many of the region's manufacturing companies and asked about what the biggest challenges and opportunities were," Hengel said. "Everything there revolved around the workforce.
"Greater Bemidji started the Minnesota Innovation Institute as part of that," said Hengel.

For Dave Hengel, executive director of Greater Bemidji, an economic development organization, having four Bemidji companies on the Inc. 5000 is a validation of what he's noticed the past few years.
"I've been calling Bemidji the emerging start-up city of Minnesota, and this is just another one of those indications of that," Hengel said. "We've had some great entrepreneurs that have started wonderful companies that are springing up across the city. We've seen a lot of that in the entrepreneur meet ups here at Greater Bemidji."
According to Hengel, one of the key benefits from the recent listing is the variety.
"Historically, over the years, Bemidji hasn't had as diverse of an economy as we'd like to have. It certainly has been focused on tourism, retail and services," Hengel said.
Certainly the first is the space for people starting a company," Hengel said.
