“This blog helps us keep people informed about the great collaborations and developments coming out of Vision 2020,” said Katy Silliman, Vision 2020 Director. “There is a tremendous amount of passion and enthusiasm we are hearing from people across the region about where Northeast Indiana is going and what we can achieve collectively; one of the biggest challenges we face is sharing this energy with a larger audience, and we hope the blog can become a strong tool to help us achieve this.”
The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership (NEIRP) was created in 2006 to help build a globally competitive economy in Northeast Indiana through business development, capacity building and job growth. In 2010, Vision 2020 was formed under the umbrella of the Partnership to build the capacity of the region in five key areas: 21st Century Talent, Competitive Business Climate, Entrepreneurship, Infrastructure and Quality of Life. By combining business development efforts with capacity building, NEIRP has the tools needed to leverage the region’s current attributes and build future strength.
