INITIATIVES

The Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP), was formed in 1999 to bring together the chief executives of the region’s prominent corporations, foundations and universities in a strategic and collaborative effort dedicated to the region’s continued prosperity and growth.

To advance this mission, CICP sponsors five key talent and industry sector initiatives, AgriNovus Indiana, Ascend Indiana, BioCrossroads, Conexus Indiana and TechPoint each of which addresses challenges and opportunities unique to its respective sector: agbiosciences, talent and workforce development, life sciences, advanced manufacturing and logistics and technology.

AgriNovus Indiana is a non-profit coalition of leaders across industry, academia and government focused on growing Indiana’s agbioscience economy across food, animal health, plant science and agtech.
