We are proud that in 2018, 20,000 Minnesota businesses, website publishers, and nonprofits benefitted from Google tools and that we helped provide $6.41 billion of economic activity for Minnesota organizations (source). And we know that for many small businesses, learning how to harness the Internet can help them grow their business.
We also recognize the importance of digital skills when searching for a job in Minnesota. According to the National Skills Coalition, only 45% of state workers are trained to the middle-skill level.
We’re excited to partner with terrific libraries and community organizations throughout the state to help Minnesota job seekers and small businesses learn digital skills.
