Indy’s Impact on Marketing Tech (and How Marketing Tech is Shaping Indy)

 
Marketing technology has emerged as one of the fastest-growing and highest-profile business clusters in the greater Indianapolis area. In fact, there have been 10 local tech-related acquisitions or IPO's since 2009 — representing 3,500 jobs and $4.5 billion in market value — and four of those major liquidity events were with marketing tech firms, including Angie's List, Aprimo, ExactTarget, and iGoDigital.
 
A great deal of wealth has been created through these acquisitions and IPOs, and with such a mature and specialized talent pool located here, the future of marketing tech in Indy is decidedly “glass half full.” The growth and success in this sector is so compelling that community leaders have joined forces with TechPoint and created a new marquee event that is 100 percent dedicated to builders, buyers, investors and practitioners of marketing tech. TechPoint’s M-TECH: The Marketing Tech Experience will be held on Sept. 19, at the JW Marriott in Downtown Indianapolis.
 
FEATURING:
 
Tim Kopp
Chief Marketing Officer
ExactTarget
Scott Hill
Executive Chairman
CIK Enterprises
Join us on Friday, Sept. 6, to hear featured speakers Tim Kopp (CMO of ExactTarget — the largest of the aforementioned acquisition and IPO successes and the host of the world’s largest marketing tech user-conference) and Scott Hill, executive chairman of CIK Enterprises. Tim and Scott are two of the most ardent supporters of growing marketing tech in Indiana who will share their views on this emerging cluster as well as where marketing is heading, and where Indy can and should play a role.
