2015 was a game changing year for both our community and the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP), and a year that laid the groundwork and strategy for substantial future progress. In February, Brookings Institution’s study, America’s Advanced Industries What They Are, Where They Are and Why They Matter, highlighted that Indianapolis continues to drive a nationally competitive range of opportunities for regional growth and innovation in life sciences, advanced manufacturing and information technology.
CICP and its sector initiatives are, in many ways, ahead of the pack. Our agriculture innovation, life sciences, advanced manufacturing and logistics, energy technology and information technology initiatives are uniquely aligned with one another, with corporate, university and philanthropic stakeholders and with public-sector leadership both regionally and statewide. As a result, our initiatives are primed to take advantage of these and other ‘hot’ areas of skilled and high-wage opportunity growth. Learn more about our work at CICP and what our six initiatives, AgriNovus Indiana, BioCrossroads, Central Indiana Workforce Development Initiative, Conexus Indiana, Energy Systems Network and TechPoint, are doing.
