The Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville reports it has helped secure more than 900 job commitments and $13.2 million in capital investments so far this year. The organization says the professional & business services sector is expected to create the most jobs and investments. Innovation Pointe, a high-tech business incubator managed by the group, is also seeing growth.

EVANSVILLE, IN — The year 2011 is looking optimistic for the Greater Evansville economy. Over 900 jobs have been announced with more than $13.2 million in capital investments expected over the next five-year period. According to the Applied Economics Impact Model, the jobs created in Greater Evansville will have an economic impact of $890 million over the next five years. “This figure represents the total impact these projects will have on our community and takes into consideration the primary jobs created by the companies as well as secondary jobs such as construction, personal and professional services, retail, etc.,” said Donna Crooks, Business Development Director for the Growth Alliance.

The Professional & Business Services sector is expected to create the most jobs and capital investments. Nearly one-half of the projects represent the Manufacturing sector which continues to be strength of the area. “The amount of activity experienced in Greater Evansville in the past 6 months is certainly encouraging for the economic growth of the area considering the current state of our national economy,” said Debbie Dewey, President of the Growth Alliance.

The Growth Alliance also remains committed to assisting existing companies in the area. Three out of the seven companies assisted this year are local businesses that made a commitment to bring new jobs or to keep existing jobs in Evansville instead of choosing other obtainable locations within the United States.

Innovation Pointe, a high tech business incubator managed by the Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville is currently occupied by 29 clients, and approximately 75+ employees. In 2011, the Growth Alliance has personally met and assisted 34 potential Innovation Pointe clients. Of the 34 potential clients, 9 have located at Innovation Pointe.

The Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville and Crane Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center, (NSWC) Crane) have an innovative Technology Transfer agreement that holds tremendous potential for area businesses. The Technology Transfer agreement allows the Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville access to federal lab technologies and patents, making them available to area businesses and entrepreneurs that are looking to new ideas for products, services and problem solutions. In 2011, four companies have engaged in Technology Transfer activities to identify federal lab technologies that respond to specific company needs and areas of interest. Of the four companies, two are actively investigating new materials developed through federal labs.

The Growth Alliance also works hard to support the City’s redevelopment plan to produce a vital Downtown that attracts businesses. In 2011, the Growth Alliance has assisted four new and two existing companies with interest in development or expansion in Downtown Evansville. In addition to this, 16 Downtown businesses were assisted through the Downtown Design Review process in regards to exterior renovations and/or changes to property in the Downtown Redevelopment Area.

Even with the oppressive heat, the 2011 Vanderburgh County Farm Bureau Farmers’ Market, hosted by the Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville, has proven to be successful. The Friday market currently has 32 registered vendors, with additional vendors applying each week.

The Fourth of July Freedom Celebration & Fireworks Spectacular produced by the Growth Alliance continues to be a summertime favorite for many tri-state families. Attendance continues to grow with a reported 40,000+ spectators at the 2011 event.
