Collaborate Freeport is a group of business leaders, government leaders, community development organizations and passionate citizens that have banded together to brand and market Freeport and Stephenson County to create a stronger sense of community, increase economic development and work toward a shared vision of a vibrant, healthy and engaged Stephenson County.

To drive these efforts, Collaborate Freeport works with many organizations in and around Stephenson County. In 2016, Collaborate Freeport hired a5 Inc. to manage the “All In” branding and marketing campaign and continues to work closely with them to maintain and advance the movement.
