2020 Vision

The Society of Innovators at Purdue Northwest drives economic and community development in Northwest Indiana through innovation. We are turning our focus toward the future with our 20/20 Vision plan.

Join us as we launch several new events and programs for the decade ahead.


It has been said that innovators are the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently. We agree.

Whether you are just starting out or decades into your career, we’re here to help you learn, grow and connect. The society is for entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, all sectors and industries, for-profits and non-profits, and for those driving Northwest Indiana forward.


New in 2020, the Society of Innovators is launching a full year of programming that includes interactive monthly workshops, an innovation masterclass series, partner events and even more networking opportunities.


We are revamping the Society of Innovators’ awards program for 2020. This will mean an even bigger and better celebration of our region’s dreamers, doers and visionaries. Details will be announced in March.


Innovation is a team sport. Supporting the Society of Innovators is an opportunity to build your image as a forward-thinking organization while reaching Northwest Indiana’s talented problem solvers.
