Inside INdiana Business: Chambers: A Focus on Entrepreneurs

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Indiana’s incoming secretary of commerce says juicing the state’s entrepreneurial ecosystem will be a priority as he seeks to keep economic development momentum rolling. Governor Eric Holcomb selected Indianapolis-based Buckingham Companies founder and Chief Executive Officer Brad Chambers as the state’s new economic development chief last week and Chambers says building the state’s historic innovation pipeline will be a priority.

“There’s no better example of an entrepreneur than looking more than 125 years ago at Colonel Eli Lilly. He started a business that is still around today generating dynamic economic contributions, high paying jobs and contributing to our state’s economy,” said Chambers, who adds he wants to “pour some fertilizer on the state’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
