About Us


TechPoint serves as the catalyst, evangelist & connective tissue of Indiana’s tech community (see some stories & successes). Our team wakes up every day thinking about how we strengthen our tech ecosystem and help our promising tech companies grow. We do this through five main functions:

TechPoint Events: We’ll organize nearly 50 events this year for roughly 5,000 attendees. See events here. (Team Lead: Annie Grinstead)

TechPoint Media: We’ll curate 200 stories this year about noteworthy companies, people, events and topics that will be shared with our 13,000+ active email subscribers (subscribe here) and will reach 20 million readers, followers and subscribers. (Team Leads: Joshua Hall & Raquel Bahamonde)

TechPoint Talent:

Xtern: We created “the ultimate tech internship experience” and welcomed 50 lucky software development and engineering students to Indy to work at 12 different companies and participate in an amazing experience. (Team Lead: Sally Reasoner)

Xpat: We recruit 20-, 30- and 40-somethings living outside the state by spreading the word about our awesome cities, companies and job opportunities. Learn more here. (Team Lead: Ellen Funke)

Orr Fellowship: We support this incredible program that attracts some of the finest graduating college seniors and grooms them to be our next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders.

TechPoint Tailwind: We amplify, educate and invest in our tech entrepreneurs and startups in order to accelerate their growth. We’ll do 11 Entrepreneur Bootcamps this year, and we’ve invested over $20 million. Register or apply here.

TechPoint Research + Strategy: We investigate important topics and inform future plans that impact our tech community. Here are examples.

Since 2006, TechPoint has proudly been an initiative part of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP), alongside BioCrossroads (life sciences), Conexus (advanced manufacturing + logistics), Energy Systems Network (clean energy), and the Indiana Food & Agriculture Innovation Initiative.
