The Tour of Opportunities is a workshop for entrepreneurs to get tools to start or grow their business in Aitkin. Join us at the Butler Building to meet business experts, mentors, and lenders that can help you connect the dots between your great idea and a thriving business.

We’ll provide you with a step-by-step checklist to open a successful business, along with resources to accomplish each step. Your checklist will include insight on writing a business plan, applying for permits, grants, loans, listings of available properties, and more.

Here’s how it works: Any time during Tour hours, come to the Butler Building to check in, get your tour materials, and meet with the experts that can help you. We’ll have virtual tours of properties so you can scout locations that might fit best with your plan.
