Forward Sioux Falls

Forward Sioux Falls is the proven and successful joint venture economic development partnership between the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce and the Sioux Falls Development Foundation. Since 1987 we have raised more than $37 million to enhance economic development efforts and improve the quality of life of the region.

The Sioux Falls area has changed tremendously since that first campaign – more jobs, expanding superior medical facilities, dozens of education opportunities and better shopping and cultural activities. Forward Sioux Falls can´t take all of the credit for our community´s successes. However, we have been instrumental in bringing the right people together and creating the right environment to allow for growth and progress in our region.

 

Specific components of the Forward Sioux Falls programs have changed over the years, but investors continue to favor program initiatives that are aggressive in attracting new business, increasing job growth and enhancing the overall quality of life.

"On behalf of the officers and directors of the Economic Development Alliance, I want to thank you and your staff for the great job NCDS did in helping restructure the Alliance, and for successful management of the fundraising campaign that fully funded our five-year action plan. The NCDS process and format delivered exactly what you said it would do when you met with Alliance members over eighteen months ago. The NCDS process engaged top regional private and public sector leaders and attracted financial support from large and small companies and communities throughout the region."
