Celebrating Our Efforts: Applied Research Institute Recognized as a Top Economic Development Organization by Purpose Jobs

We are thrilled that the Applied Research Institute has been honored by Purpose Jobs as one of the best economic development organizations of 2024. ARI had a pivotal role in securing three once-in-a-generation tech hub opportunities, a testament to our commitment to fostering innovation and economic growth in and from Indiana.

Purpose Jobs, known as the largest community of purpose-driven startup and tech professionals, has spotlighted organizations across Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, and beyond. ARI’s inclusion in this list reaffirms what we’ve known all along: Indiana stands as a global pioneer, not only securing our nation but also paving the way for future prosperity.

Our team’s efforts in leading the charge to land these tech hubs underscore our mission to catalyze opportunities that enhance national security and drive economic prosperity. These federal designations are more than just accolades; they are an opportunity to secure Indiana’s future economy for generations to come.

But what does this mean for you? Is it too late to join an Applied Research Institute-led tech hub? Absolutely not. We are eager to welcome companies interested in developing and manufacturing their products right here in Indiana. Our door remains open for organizations looking to become part of our growing tech ecosystem. To find out if your organization is eligible to join, please submit your information.

Our recognition alongside esteemed peers from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership, TechPoint, and the Bloomington Economic Development Corporation, highlights the collaborative spirit that drives the Indiana tech sector forward. As Purpose Jobs aptly described, organizations like ours serve as the backbone of emerging tech hubs, offering invaluable support and collaboration.

This accolade is a reflection of our collective efforts and dedication to making Indiana a beacon of technological innovation and economic development. It is a celebration not just of our achievements but of our potential to catalyze further growth and prosperity.
