A note from Bradley B. Chambers
Secretary of Commerce, State of Indiana

Every May, the State of Indiana is racing with excitement around our annual hosting of the largest single sporting event on the planet, the Indianapolis 500! The 107th running of this historic race is closely intertwined with Indiana’s highly competitive economy, culture of innovation, speed, and focus on winning!

If you didn’t catch it recently..., Forbes reported that Indiana holds the pole position, the no. 1 ranking for the best place to start a business – a result of everything just mentioned, plus our business-friendly climate and our strategic 5E focus.

READ MOREFollowing our trip to Asia last month, where we met with Korean and Japanese partners and represented Indiana at the InterBattery Conference, Indiana continues its unprecedented progress as one of the best states for industries of the future. Not to mention our continued focus on and commitment to supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs across the state.

Headlining this month’s newsletter is a must-read feature on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In addition, we highlight the recent Small Business Week events, our Entrepreneurial All-Star video from ZeroCarb Lyfe and fascinating innovations from STEM students in southern Indiana.
