PLANNING GUIDE: All 74 Fundable Companies of Innovation Showcase

The organizers of The Innovation Showcase — the largest entrepreneurial showcase in Indiana and possibly the Midwest — have released the full list of 74 fundable companies that will be pitching for $72,000 in cash investment and services.

These companies are among a select group of startups that made the cut to pitch and exhibit at this year’s Innovation Showcase, which is being held at the Dallara Indycar Factory on the west side of Greater Indianapolis in the town of Speedway on July 9.

That’s not all, you’ll also get actionable insights from some of the most successful entrepreneurs and investors in the country, including:

  • Chris Heivly, co-founder of MapQuest (sold to AOL for $1.1 billion) and The Startup Factory accelerator based in Durham, North Carolina
  • Chris Baggott, co-founder of ExactTarget (sold for $2.5 billion to Salesforce) Compendium (sold to Oracle) and several new food ventures
  • Investors from Drive Capital, Venture Club, and VisionTech-Partners to name a few.

More than 1,000 people are expected to attend Innovation Showcase this year and there are only a limited number of tickets left.


If you want to make the most out of attending an event like Innovation Showcase, you should plan ahead, know who’s exhibiting, and figure out who you want to meet with in advance. Here is more information and direct links to the 2015 exhibitors:
