Columbus, IN Leads the Nation in Economic Development
Here at North Star we’re fond of saying that economic development brands don’t occur in a vacuum. In other words, the community’s reputation as a whole is taken into account when capital investment decisions are being made. Proving our point (and proving again how incredible they are) North Star community branding client Columbus, IN was just named 2012’s #1 leading location by Area Development magazine. That’s high praise considering Area Development is the top executive magazine covering corporate site selection and relocation. Guess economic development influencers are pretty impressed with the unexpected and unforgettable nature of this economic powerhouse!
