About

Mission Statement:

Greater Ottumwa Partners in Progress (GOPIP) is a collaborative group committed to promoting the Greater Ottumwa economic development climate through community and business partnership opportunities.


This partnership recently merged the activities of both Ottumwa Economic Development Corp. and Ottumwa Area Chamber of Commerce to work more closely with business and industrial colleagues. GOPIP has the combined power of 118 years of experience working with local, corporate, and independent professionals. It is the synergistic force advancing an inclusive commitment to making Southeast Iowa a more prosperous region by improving economic vitality, supporting community enrichment, and enhancing visitor experiences.

GOPIP is funded with both public and private contributions from businesses that believe in the strong collaborative efforts of GOPIP; efforts that enrich community, advance economic conditions, and support a robust Main Street for the area.

Whether you are looking for expanded opportunities for networking, economic or demographic information, building and land inventories, labor and training options, startup & relocation data, or navigation of various financial resources, GOPIP strives to offer what you are looking for in a progressive environment.
