Accelerating Indiana’s Digital Transformation

Our focus at Conexus is to develop and grow Indiana’s advanced manufacturing and logistics (AML) industries. We do that by connecting manufacturers, logistics companies, academic partners, and the public sector to drive digital innovation, develop new talent, and implement ideas that make us all stronger.

Leading Indiana’s Economic Growth

We collaborate with businesses, academic institutions, industry executives, and other partners in just about every corner of Indiana, bringing together diverse perspectives to help identify challenges and create opportunities in AML. Everything we do is about maximizing our state’s economic potential while helping Hoosiers find rewarding careers in these rapidly evolving industries.
