Indiana Defense Network (IDN) is the premier resource for companies across Indiana and the midwest to turn to for defense and supply chain related concerns. IDN acts as the gateway in becoming a vetted/validated and trusted member of the Ecosystem community.
In support of the State-sponsored mission to grow and retain businesses in Indiana, IDN (as a 501(c)3) is spearheading several initiatives to help businesses win in the federal/defense contracting space. The IDN team stands beside you and your business as a partner in the federal contracting/defense market journey-whether you are a buyer, supplier, or government agent.
IDN is ready to help you understand more, answer your questions and discuss how being part of this ecosystem/community can benefit your business.
The Aerospace & Defense Supply Chain Ecosystem (A&DSCE) is made up of a robust community of individuals, businesses, academics and government entities.
Vetted members work together in a spirit of collaboration to re-shore, strengthen, and provide resiliency to America's supply chain. In turn, each member's efforts provide mutual benefit and increased opportunities to all members within the ecosystem/community.
Once your business has been vetted/validated, as a now trusted member, you and your business are entitled to all benefits, introductions and opportunities offered exclusively within the ecosystem/community. Participating in important roles such as partner, mentor, protege, complementor or enabler opens new opportunities for your business to grow its portfolio.
