Mission: To engage Millennials in developing, attracting, and retaining talent in Northeast Indiana.

Millennial 2020 is an extension of Vision 2020, a regional initiative stewarded by the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership and the Regional Opportunities Council working to transform the Northeast Indiana economy with priorities within the five pillars of Vision 2020.

Vision 2020 is a regional initiative focused on reaching a common vision by the year 2020: "to become a top global competitor, exceeding the expectations of businesses and residents." To achieve this vision, groups aligned with the Vision 2020 initiative are focused on a common mission: to develop, attract and retain talent in the region through strategies in the key focus area we call The Five Pillars: 21st Century Talent, Competitive Business Climate, Entrepreneurship, Infrastructure and Quality of Life.

21st Century Talent

Develop talent by increasing educational attainment and creating quality of opportunity

Competitive Business Climate

Create a business-friendly environment that will attract and retain top industry leaders


Develop and attract innovative talent by connecting them to the right resources and increasing the region’s deal flow


The right infrastructure creates access and connectivity needed to support and retain our talent

Quality of Life

We can only attract and retain talent if we provide arts, culture, recreation, and more
