On The Beat Industry News In Brief

The Hamilton County Alliance economic development group has spun off its Entrepreneurship Advancement Center, which serves fast-growing startup businesses in Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, Westfield and the rest of Hamilton County.

The not-for-profit EAC will operate independently of the alliance under the leadership of Executive Director Cathy Langlois and a board of area business leaders. It began as a Hamilton County Alliance program, but the spinoff will allow the EAC to expand its mission and seek private and public grant money. It also plans to partner with secondary schools in Hamilton County to introduce entrepreneurship to students.

“The future economic health of Hamilton County will rely on two factors: first, our ability to attract and retain large employers, and secondly, our ability to grow new companies,” Langlois said. “The EAC will provide much-needed resources and support for these growing companies.”
