Business Climate


MapWelcome to Southeast Indiana, the affordable Cincinnati address. Just minutes away from the western edge of the Cincinnati metropolitan area. Our region includes Dearborn, Franklin, Ripley, Ohio, Switzerland, and Union counties.

We could sell you on the quality of life here in safe, relaxed, small- to mid-size communities. We could emphasize our great schools and affordable housing, and we’d be smart to mention the proximity to all Cincinnati has to offer via several interstate highways and river ports. But we’d be misleading you if that were all we told you.

Our region is primed for corporate and commercial expansion and development, a logical and promising location for enterprises of all kinds. The low cost of doing business and affordable real estate make smart business sense. The State of Indiana’s conservative approach to fiscal management results in a reduced likelihood of tax increases, and lower workers compensation rates equal a lower cost of doing business. You’ll have all the regional benefits without the crushing costs found in other parts of the Greater Cincinnati area.

In other words, it all adds up to the big opportunity you’ve been looking for.



Location is of great importance, but Southeast Indiana offers you a wonderful business climate as well.

From a business-friendly government to existing businesses ready to partner with new businesses, the economic community in Southeast Indiana is prepared to work with you to ensure your success.
