Regional Vision

Vision 2030 Goals

Northeast Indiana has a bold vision of building a region where businesses and people thrive.

Working together, Northeast Indiana is a magnet for the best businesses and talent and is recognized as one of the nation’s most prosperous regions.

To ensure the best possible business climate is available for new and existing businesses in Fort Wayne and Northeast Indiana, we’ve been investing in our regional capacity for more than a decade.

Building a best-in-class region happens by collaborating with business, government and community leaders on business attraction, talent attraction, and talent development to address three goals by the year 2030. We call this our Vision 2030 plan.

By the year 2030, Northeast Indiana must:

  • Increase PCPI to 90 percent against the national average
  • Increase the population of Northeast Indiana to 1 million residents
  • Increase postsecondary educational and credential attainment to more than 60 percent

Northeast Indiana is especially strong because we collaborate. By joining our collective strengths and ideas, we cultivate a region that’s both diverse and unified. We realize that great things do not come easily; we’re a region that’s virtually unmatched in its tireless pursuit of ingenious solutions.

To keep our community thriving, we must take action now to increase population, encourage wage growth and ensure we are competitive in the global economy.

Are you ready to collaborate on Northeast Indiana’s bold vision? Join us as we move our region forward. We can do this together.
