#1: We’re competitive.
Indiana ranked first in the nation for cost of doing business and infrastructure quality (CNBC 2019).
#2: We’re in the middle of America’s largest economies.
Fort Wayne is Indiana’s second-largest market, located between the Chicago, Detroit, and Indianapolis metro areas.
#3: We have the workers you need.
Indiana is the Midwest’s talent magnet magnet–we are the only state with positive net domestic migration, and Allen County’s annual population growth rate is double that of the state and the nation (U.S. Census Bureau, 2020).
With a rich history in engineering and entrepreneurship and a deep-seated Midwestern commitment to service, our local economy is bustling with successful small businesses, established corporations, and foreign direct investment. Come see what the leadership of corporations like General Mills, Vera Bradley, Berkshire Hathaway, General Motors, and others already know about the Fort Wayne region.
