We love sharing stories about the great things going on in our community and surrounding areas. Why? Because it is Destination Duluth's mission to share those stories with others..

The excitement in Duluth continues to build. A few weeks ago we wrote about entrepreneurship being alive and well. In fact, not only is it alive we are happy to report it is flourishing. Another story that really warms our hearts and proves we are moving in the right direction with entrepreneurial spirit comes again from the University of Minnesota - Duluth. UMD has the Entrepreneurship Program and the UMD Entrepreneurship Club.

This club has decided to run a contest similar to Shark Tank and encourage even more entrepreneurship. The two students Abraham Tuomi & Tori Seymour backed by the UMD Entrepreneurship Club have put this all together. They have the goal of fostering entrepreneurship throughout the UMD student body, but also throughout the community of Duluth. Students who are in an entrepreneurship program are teaching others how to be entrepreneurs through a fun event. The community in turn is supporting UMD students. This is the new Duluth..

The UMD Entrepreneurship Club invites you to the
