Business Journal Ventures Section needs your help!

The Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal is expanding its March 31 Ventures section and needs your help.

The plan is to profile three small businesses, of varying sizes, that are doing something(s) unique to control health care costs.

More specifically, they are looking for three growing companies that are:
Category 1: $1 million to $5 million in revenue
Category 2: $5 million to $15 million in revenue
Category 3: $15 million to $25 million in revenue

These companies need to be doing something innovative to control health care costs, without sacrificing coverage for their employees or simply passing those higher costs on to employees.

These companies need to be willing to talk about revenue and health care costs to some extent.

These companies need to serve as models for what other business owners, leading similar-sized entities, can do themselves.

And the Business Journal needs your suggestions soon. The editor will be assigning these stories Wednesday, March 1.
