Since the introduction of the Indiana Vision 2025 economic development plan in 2012, the Chamber’s BizVoice® magazine has produced more than 200 stories related to the four drivers. The current issue includes these offerings, and more, tied to the Dynamic and Creative Culture pillar:
- Velocities is the new Elevate Ventures regional initiative bringing Bloomington and Columbus together. A number of assets – including The Mill in Bloomington and The Fish Tank in Columbus – are already in place. The collaboration is expected to “elevate” the current efforts to a new level.
