Seize the Future Development Foundation is Now Invest Aurora

Aurora, IL – Seize the Future Development Foundation, Aurora’s economic development partnership is now Invest Aurora. The city of Aurora launched a branding initiative in early 2015, revealing a new logo at the State of the City. Subsequently, Seize the Future Development Foundation sought to rebrand as well, with a focus to more closely align the name and look of the organization with its mission – to grow the economic vitality of the city of Aurora. As such, the Board of Directors chose to rebrand the organization as Invest Aurora. “Seize the Future is a great inspirational name,” states David Hulseberg, president/CEO of Invest Aurora. “However, with the city’s rebranding, we chose this time to rename the organization to Invest Aurora as it more accurately describes our mission and is more closely allied to Aurora’s new branding.” Aurora Mayor, Tom Weisner supports the branding change. “Seize the Future has certainly been busy seizing the future – the City saw a 21% increase in building permits issued in 2015 with a record valuation of over a half billion dollars,” says the Mayor. “Changing its name and brand to Invest Aurora will make it abundantly clear to businesses that, if they wish to grow with our dynamic city, Invest Aurora should be their first stop.” About Invest Aurora Invest Aurora is Aurora, Illinois’ economic development partnership.
