About Us

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) is charged with growing the state economy, driving economic development, helping businesses launch, grow and locate in the state. Led by the Indiana Secretary of Commerce and governed by a 15-member board chaired by Governor Eric J. Holcomb. The IEDC is organized as a public private partnership and manages many initiatives, including performance-based tax credits, workforce training grants, innovation and entrepreneurship resources, public infrastructure assistance, and talent attraction and retention efforts. 
  • We will aggressively pursue every opportunity that represents a promise for Hoosier jobs, and will compete locally and at a state level to win these opportunities.
  • We will attempt to match the interests of new clients and the local community, creating business plans that work for all parties concerned
  • We will continue to seek opportunities to attract new business and grow our local companies at home, and continue to improve the economy for the state of Indiana

Our work is far from done and every day, for Hoosiers across the state, we must and will deliver the message, the resources and the support to bring more new business to Indiana.
