Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS)
Indiana Economic Development Corporation
Fourth Economy is providing the state, its regions, and local communities with a roadmap and action plan for economic growth and prosperity over the next decade. This plan will leverage existing economic development efforts and strengths across the state, while addressing weaknesses to help the Hoosier state become more resilient in the face of economic downturns, and disruptive industry trend. Our work includes a deep dive into the socioeconomic data and a robust stakeholder engagement process — including interviews with industry leaders, government officials, and local topical experts; focus groups with targeted community members; surveys with broader economic development professionals; and a leadership committee comprised of public, private, and nonprofit leaders — that will culminate in a public comment period.
