Power an Inclusive Community with the Northland BIPOC Business Directory

June 6, 2023

The Northland BIPOC Business Directory, which debuted in the summer months of 2022, was compiled and launched through a collaborative effort by the City of Duluth’s Department of Planning & Economic Development, the Duluth 1200 Fund, Entrepreneur Fund, and Nomadic Black.

This community resource exists to celebrate, promote, ignite power, and advance people of color owned businesses and communities. The directory is intended for businesses that are people of color owned and operated in the Twin Ports to provide resources, connections, awareness, and to bring communities of color together. The three goals of the Northland BIPOC Business Directory include:

Goal 1: Success of Entrepreneurs of Color

Directing our buying power back to businesses owned by people of color will allow us to amplify awareness, create jobs, and provide the next generation a brighter future.

Goal 2: Strengthen our Community

We seek to lift up people, places, and products and to encourage you to fully support and participate in the creativity, joy, and self-determination of communities of color throughout our community.

Goal 3: Power an Inclusive Economy

Expand access to technical assistance, financial capital, grow social capital, procurement systems, and more to cultivate an inclusive ecosystem to close the racial wealth gap.

The Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to feature the following Chamber members who are listed in the Northland BIPOC Business Directory. Visit https://www.northlandbipoc.com/directory/ to explore the full directory and to lend your support and patronage to these talented local businesses.

“Black, Indigenous, people of color owned businesses are integral to the fabric of our community. They deserve our support today and every day.”
