With several innovative companies locating in and around Brownsburg over the past decade, economic development leaders here hope that a new multi-channel promotional effort will build on that success to attract similar companies. The “Innovation Zone” campaign will target companies that are currently in business incubators or similar start-up spaces and that need additional space and resources to foster the next stage of growth.

The name “Innovation Zone” refers to a general description of the area, rather than a particular geographic boundary. Companies that are focused on innovation and new ideas have been drawn to Brownsburg by the business resources, highly skilled workforce, access to Central Indiana, and superior quality of life. For example, BioSafe Engineering manufactures of state-of-the-art equipment for the treatment of medical and bio-hazardous waste; Biologics Modular designs and constructs modular suites such as clean rooms for biotech facilities; and Cryopoint provides secure biotech storage solutions for clients from university research projects to medical facilities and pharmaceutical companies.

Town leaders would like to see more like them locate here. The Town is particularly interested in landing companies in highly technical sectors, such as medical device developers, bio/pharma firms, internet technology companies, research and development centers, and other areas of life science. In Hendricks County, companies with less than 10 employees provide 46 percent of the jobs. With that in mind, the Town aims to focus on helping entrepreneurs and small, growing companies see that Brownsburg is a great place to grow their second-stage businesses.

The “Innovation Zone” website, www.innovationbrownsburg.com, recently launched and the marketing campaign will also include print brochures, e-newsletters and other highly-focused tactics. Biologics Modular president and CEO Clark Bynum recently talked about the "Innovation Zone" with Gerry Dick on Inside Indiana Business. Watch the TV segment HERE>>
