The Central Indiana Corporate Partnership helps ensure collaboration yields success throughout the Indy region.
Across the entire Indianapolis region, from the public sector to the business community to the academic institutions to the philanthropic organizations, you can see that collaboration yields success. You continually see all four sectors working together to constantly iterate and improve Indy as a whole.
The Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP) plays a major role in this collaboration. CICP has been integral to the diversification of the Indianapolis economy and is an actor unique to Central Indiana. CICP is the only organization of its kind in the nation: a CEO-only organization made up of the region’s largest businesses along with university and philanthropic leaders.
“Indianapolis has brought structure to the practice of collaboration. It has moved business and social networks to a higher level of productive connectivity. CEOs are not only pulled together to discuss, they convene to decide. Collaboration is treated as a serious business that advances the broader prosperity of the city and metropolis and offers businesses real opportunities for expansion and differentiation.” -Bruce Katz, The New Localism
