Forward Sioux Falls 2021

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.
