Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A new business is helping bring entrepreneurs together tonight in the twin ports.

Twin Ports Connex is a nonprofit organization connecting people who want to build or grow their business here in the northland.

Tonight was the first seminar for people between the ages of 20 and 35 who are starting a business or who already have a business and want to network with others.

This is a great opportunity to help businesses stay in the twin ports.

"To do more to help young people stay here, to help them feel welcomed and we know that one of the big things to help people to stay in any location is that they have to succeed economically, they have to get a job, so our focus on internships and on making career connections is really designed to help them succeed economically," said Rob Karwath, Director of the organization.

Twin Ports Connex hopes these elements will help foster business growth in the northland.
