Iowa’s Creative Corridor is strategically located in the center of the largest population region in the state of Iowa, attracting workers from a 60-mile radius. With a regional population of more than 400,000, this seven county region has consistently attracted knowledge workers for our growing companies.
Here, creativity is seen in all we do, from our companies to our arts communities. It’s in our heritage and it’s the foundation for our future.
Our area is a model of regional economic development and a magnet for business. Nearly 30 Fortune 500 companies and over a dozen foreign-based companies reside here. With one of the largest labor pools in the state, and double-digit growth every decade, Iowa’s Creative Corridor consistently attracts skilled and educated professionals.
Workforce is an essential component to business success. Committed to a vital and prosperous economy, the Iowa City Area Development Group and the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance have partnered to maintain a website that helps interstate commerce companies with workforce retention and attraction in Iowa’s Creative Corridor. These two organizations work with economic development partners in Benton County, Cedar County, Iowa County, Jones County, and Washington County.
