The core mission of this site is to promote Duluth and Duluth area business by connecting individuals and companies with one another. We'll continue to evaluate both the weaknesses and strengths of our area, and provide assistance or contact information when possible.
There are many reasons businesses should locate to the Duluth area, including:
- Shipping Ports in Duluth and Superior
- Railroad network
- Iron Range Mines
- Skilled work force

- Great natural resources (water, forests, iron ore, etc.)
