    Time to Go for It

    Time to Go for It

    Not too long after he became the CEO of Elevate Ventures last summer, Christopher Day was having visions of putting Indiana on the map from an innovation standpoint.

    “It was time to think much bigger as a state,” the Indiana tech veteran and entrepreneur recalls. Out of that desire, the Rally Innovation Conference was born. The event celebrates cross-sector connections between companies, entrepreneurs, investors and universities from across the globe and features an attention-getting $5 million pitch competition.

    In this edition of the IN Chamber podcast, Day dives into what the Rally event is all about and what it means for start-ups, the broader business community and the state. We also catch up on Indiana’s entrepreneurial and venture capital landscapes.

    Encouraging ‘Courageous Conversations’ and ‘Bringing Back Our Own’

    Encouraging ‘Courageous Conversations’ and ‘Bringing Back Our Own’

    Coming from an impoverished upbringing in segregated North Carolina, Dr. Jim Johnson knew he had a larger purpose.

    He once told Fast Company magazine for its “Hopes and Dreams” issue: “There are pressing social problems we should be addressing, and I had to do something. I’ve always believed I was put on this earth to make a difference.”

    Today, Johnson is doing that through various youth and education programs he’s started and his efforts as a noted workplace diversity and entrepreneurship scholar at the University of North Carolina.

    In this edition of the IN Chamber podcast, Johnson talks about competitive businesses intelligence, the importance of having "courageous conversations” with each other around diversity, how states and communities should focus on getting workers to return to their hometowns – and much more.

    On a Fiscal Note

    Politics and policy intersect in this edition of the IN Chamber podcast featuring David Ober. The former state lawmaker is now on the other side, with the 2023 legislative session his first as the Indiana Chamber’s tax expert.

    As we enter the second half of the Indiana General Assembly, Ober takes a look at some of the biggest tax policies still in play that impact employers and local communities. He also offers wisdom regarding the current political scene, Indiana’s tax competitiveness and rising utility rates (Ober spent the prior four years on the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission).

    In Passionate ‘Pursuit’ of Work-Based Learning

    In Passionate ‘Pursuit’ of Work-Based Learning

    Being considered a triple threat (actor, dancer and singer) in the entertainment field can open many doors. In the education and workforce realm, Carrie Lively has more than three designations to her name – and she’s putting them all to good use.

    A former teacher, school counselor, administrator and state agency official, Lively is now the executive director at the Pursuit Institute in Hamilton County, which is an intermediary between area schools and businesses for work-based learning opportunities. Designated as an independent career and technical education (CTE) district by the state, the Pursuit Institute can offer CTE programming the same as a conventional high school.

    While Hamilton County is recognized as one the leaders for work-based learning in the state, there is an increased awareness by stakeholders that such high-quality activities need to take place throughout Indiana. That’s because they have an essential and even transformative role in preparing Hoosiers for success in a rapidly changing economy and aid businesses in growing their own talent pipeline.

    In this edition of the IN Chamber podcast, Lively talks the Pursuit Institute’s reach, all things work-based learning and how employers can use the practice.

    RELATED: The current cover story of BizVoice® magazine features a roundtable discussion with five key players (including Lively) in the work-based learning space in Indiana. (https://www.bizvoicemagazine.com/interactive/2023/02/index.html#p=10)

The Echo Chamber is a great podcast that allows you to hear how ultra successful people think. When I first listened to the podcast, I was able to takeaway a lot of value after hearing from Lee Hamilton and Graham Richard. I'd highly recommend this informative podcast.
