TechPoint is the growth accelerator for Indiana’s tech ecosystem.

Proudly headquartered in Indianapolis, IN.

Cities and states need strong local tech ecosystems.

Tech companies are in a global battle to attract talent. Start-up and scale-up stage companies desperately need resources for growth. Other industries face intense pressure from digital transformation. Universities need connections to tech employers and job opportunities for students. Cities and states need all these entities to secure a prosperous future for their citizens.

We bring together Indiana’s tech companies, philanthropies, government, universities, and talent to create opportunity.

Nonprofit and industry-led, we want to change the world for the better, one great idea at a time. We’re making Indy’s tech ecosystem the strongest among mid-size cities and Indiana’s the strongest among Midwest states.
