The Partnership

We were formed in 2006 with the purpose of building a globally competitive economy in our 11-county region. We were created to unify, collaborate, and promote Northeast Indiana life and business while upholding the traditions and compassionate nature of our citizens, and embracing inclusivity and openness. In 2010, welaunched Vision 2020 to bring the region together around five key areas for economic growth for the purpose of increasing per capita income: 21st Century Talent, Competitive Business Climate, Entrepreneurship, Infrastructure and Quality of Life. And although we’re making tremendous strides, we’re only getting started.

We aspire to leave a legacy for future generations by strengthening our community through a spirit of inclusiveness.
