Minneapolis-St. Paul – The Minnesota Timberwolves announced today a multi-year partnership with Tornado, a modern web and mobile brokerage and community for investors at all levels.

As part of the partnership, Tornado is the presenting partner of the Timberwolves College Night Platform and will be included on all related marketing collateral, and in-arena promotions.

“The partnership between the Timberwolves College Night Platform and Tornado is a win-win,” said Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx CEO Ethan Casson. “Over the years, we have seen an emphasis on financial wellness and preparedness, in addition to increased curiosity among this particular demographic. We’re excited to welcome Tornado to the Timberwolves family and connect students to the investing world.”
