The Millennial Leaders Alliance

It is composed of 3-4 Millennials per county in Northeast Indiana's 10-county region, one MLA leader per county, at-large members and the Vision 2020 staff. The group is responsible for leading Millennial engagement in developing, attracting, and retaining talent in Northeast Indiana.

In 2012 and 2013, the MLA hosted Spark Tank
, an event similar to the TV show 'Shark Tank.' Millennials were challenged to come up with business ideas or community engagement opportunities and pitch them. After all the ideas were pitched, groups were formed and business plans or strategies were created. At the end of the day, all remaining groups presented their idea to a panel of judges. The top two ideas received $500 in seed money.
