A solution to counter Central Illinois’s economic stagnation, population loss and lack of competitiveness is forming a branding umbrella to promote the combined assets of Peoria, Springﬁeld, Decatur, Champaign, Bloomington and many peripheral cities. Each city uses a silo approach to economic development. A provisional name is the Central Illinois Technology Triangle. Cooperation and a strength in numbers would enable the region to better compete with Nashville, Austin and the east and west coasts. This would help to position Central Illinois for the future, attract investment domestically and globally and make it relevant to the 4th Industrial Revolution.
Central Illinois, with its long history of research, development, invention and innovation, collectively forms a substantive technology region. The region’s key agtech and agribusiness strengths are not being maximized. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
