Many communities, regions and states look alike, sound alike and promote a high quality of life. What separates one area from another is the people. It is the people that live, work and play in the Iowa Lakes Corridor that make it extraordinary. People who have chosen to live, work and play here. People who have chosen to start and keep or relocate their business here. People who have chosen to start their family here, or chosen to retire here.
People in this area are generous of their time, talent, and resources as evidenced by our annual Okoboji Entrepreneurial Institute (OEI), volunteers in our Junior Achievement programming, volunteers in any number of organizations and causes, donations and investments in one of the most attractive regions in the Midwest, mentors for entrepreneurs and existing business owners, and more. We are proud of the people in the Iowa Lakes Corridor and invite you to experience all the region has to offer.
