Drink deep of the culture that surrounds you this week with Michael Huber from Indy Chamber.

Indianapolis is on the map. From the business environment and economy to our culture and our people, President and CEO of the Indy Chamber, Michael Huber, is pushing Indianapolis past the inflection point towards international recognition by boosting the economic development and unity of Indianapolis’ businesses. The blooming musician may have an impressive resume – which includes working in both Mayor Ballard and Governor Mitch Daniels administrations – yet his story begins in a small Illinois farm town.

“There are more opportunities to get involved now than there were 15 years ago, from volunteer to leadership positions.” – Michael Huber, Indy Chamber 

When Michael isn’t connecting business leaders and fostering collaboration, you’ll find him playing the keyboard for the Chamber Music Band. Michael’s love for music started when he was young and has grown into a desire to bring back Indianapolis’ identity as a music city. We discuss Indianapolis’ jazz history, the incredible musical talent that we are attracting, and the Music Cities cultural initiative plans.

Tune in to learn how the Indy Chamber supports 2,000 local businesses while writing proposals for Amazon’s HQ2, how Indianapolis’ growth is similar to some of your other favorite cities like Nashville, and how he is working to bring Indianapolis an identity to attract a more diverse city.
