Our mission: To advance public policy solutions that drive economic growth, innovation and talent while providing a new collaborative platform to address emerging tech issues and trends.
Collaboration is critical to making Indiana an even better technology and innovation hub.
The Indiana Technology & Innovation Council was formed in June 2016 – under the management of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce – to facilitate better communication and coordination among interested parties. A particular focus is public policy, so that technology leaders present a strong, unified voice at the Indiana Statehouse and beyond.
The focused effort in this area aligns with the Indiana Chamber’s Dynamic and Creative Culture driver in its Indiana Vision 2025 long-range economic development plan.
The latest: Tech Council members updated legislators in mid-March on key policy priorities and the growth of the tech and innovation sectors. One of the messages: Technology advances – whether through autonomous vehicles, the Internet of Things or other forms – are here and are going to continue to grow rapidly. It’s up to Indiana to stake out a leadership position or risk being left behind. [Status of tech bills]
