Grow in the Industrial Heart of America

The Steuben County Economic Development Corporation’s work benefits the entire community. By supporting local businesses and tackling projects from entrepreneur initiatives to workforce development, housing and site development, we are bringing stakeholders together to grow Steuben County’s economy. 

We have completed over 100 projects in the past seven years. Most of them have been business expansion projects for companies already in Steuben County, but we are also available to assist companies looking to relocate to our prime location in Northeast Indiana. Access to the major transportation routes of Interstate 69 and the I-80/I-90 Toll Road, a skilled and growing workforce of 370,000 in surrounding areas, and speed-to-market resources are all reasons why businesses choose Steuben County. The SCEDC is here to make the process of starting, growing or moving a business to Steuben County an easy one.

The mission of the Steuben County Economic Development Corporation is to lead economic prosperity through collaboration while strengthening employment opportunities to improve the quality of life in Steuben County.
