Northland Connection Launches New Website

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

APEX investor-member, The Northspan Group, launched a new version of the Northland Connection website in early November. The site outlines business assistance tools and features enhancements to the property search tool and demographic database. More than 450 business and community development resources are also available for query.

Several investor-members including Blandin Foundation, Northland Foundation and Great River Energy were financial contributors to the site. "The site is a fantastic resource for APEX to leverage when working with site consultants or new business prospects", said Brian Hanson, President and CEO. “We rely heavily on the Northland Connection portal.”

While the searchable inventory of available commercial and industrial properties is a big draw of the site, The Northspan Group deliberately put more of an emphasis on quality of place and highlighted why businesses should locate and remain here.

The Northspan Group and APEX are in the process of hosting several regional demonstration meetings to showcase the site with community, economic development and real estate partners and stakeholders.
