Northland Connection is a regional marketing, business recruitment and data management program of The Northspan Group, Inc. of Duluth. Launched as Arrowhead Business Connection in 1987 as a marketing and direct business recruitment program, Northland Connection has successfully attracted or helped to attract more than a dozen new businesses to the area, creating approximately 2,000 new jobs.
As part of that success, Northland Connection's regional partners have come to rely on the data and commercial real estate expertise its staff brings to economic development. The centerpiece of Northland Connection's value is its award-winning online portal, http://www.northlandconnection.com/. This 6,000 page Web site is driven by a series of databases, each housing relevant, up to date data and images from several key categories, including real estate, education, labor, infrastructure, industry, incentives and the attributes that make up the quality of life in our region.
The user friendly Web site has a direct link to the region's Job Opportunity Business Zones, a reference library and a section dedicated to the countless resources available to start-ups, growing or maturing businesses.
