Who We Are

Innovation Illinois is a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)(4) organization dedicated to advancing well-researched, progressive policies that support economic growth and equal opportunity in the State of Illinois.

At Innovation Illinois, we believe in revitalizing the American Dream. We believe the best way to rebuild our economy is from the middle out and that Illinois’ prosperity requires a mutually supportive loop between middle-class consumers and the businesses that depend on them. Our mission is to advocate for ideas that create growth and champion the interests of working and middle-class men, women and families.

We are supported by private and corporate donors who share our commitment to supporting an evidence-based, best-practices policy agenda that will drive strong economic growth in our state.
