Nearly 50 business, academic and civic leaders met with the Northwest Indiana Forum and consultant TIP Strategies to devise a new blueprint for economic development in Northwest Indiana.
They brainstormed ideas for ways to advance the seven-county Region's economy over the next five years. The NWI Forum is working on a sweeping $200,000 economic development plan to figure out what sectors to target and how to best leverage Northwest Indiana's assets.
“The energy in the room today was invigorating,” Northwest Indiana Forum President and Chief Executive Officer Heather Ennis said. "These leaders are committed to making Northwest Indiana more vibrant and their hope and excitement is contagious.”
