Sagamore Institute was founded in 2004 as an action-oriented think tank rooted in the Heartland. On March 19, 2024 we celebrated our 20th anniversary by bringing  together friends and partners who have come alongside us in our journey. The event featured a conversation with Indiana Governor Eric. Holcomb and former Governor Mitch Daniels moderated by Gerry Dick of Inside INdiana Business on “Hopes and Lessons Learned for Indiana’s Future.” 

Daniels and Holcomb said that Indiana is well positioned to leverage emerging economic opportunities and enhance the quality of life for millions of Hoosiers but that there are challenges we must address – such as health-care access and the need to increase educational attainment and workforce preparation. Both Daniels and Holcomb cited the importance of having an Indiana-based think tank helping to find solutions to these and other challenges facing Indiana, the United States, and the world. Watch the full recording below.
