About Us

The Monona East Side Business Alliance supports commerce by promoting our members and community health for the area’s overall prosperity. We are a private, not for profit, business collective comprised of 350+ businesses, civic organizations, and educational institutions. We are the source for business news, networking events, economic development resources, job creation and communication in the Monona East Side community.

Our mission is to promote and foster an environment that attracts, supports and retains private-sector jobs, spurs economic vitality and enables quality educational opportunities for the area while always promoting and encouraging engagement with our members. With the help of our members, MESBA is committed to improving the economic future and sustaining the quality of life of our community. We are dedicated to propelling the Monona East Side community forward through sustainable and responsible business growth.

In pursuit of that mission, the Monona East Side Business Alliance offers a variety of networking events and professional development opportunities to connect and foster growth in our business community. We also advocate for business at all levels of government.

We are governed by an 11-15 member board of directors, representing a diversity of companies, industries and business interests. The board is actively involved in decision-making regarding our advocacy efforts, financial health, programming and membership recruitment and retention.
