What is the Indiana Founders Network?

A network designed to lighten the load on tech founders and help them succeed.

Starting a new business, service or product is a daunting task, but inventors, innovators and founders have long been described as courageous, audacious and brave. Less often acknowledged and rarely addressed are other attribute these trailblazers share: loneliness, brutal stress and even fear.

In Indiana, that lack of attention on the psychological price of entrepreneurship stops today with the launch of the Indiana Founders Network, an organization supported by TechPoint but led by members.

What to Expect at Network Events

Networking Breakfasts  

Founders will gather at these breakfasts for an informal conversation around a central topic. No presentation – just discussion. 

These gatherings are an informal, approachable way for founders to build relationships and share knowledge with each other. 

Pitch Night Gatherings

Ahead of TechPoint’s quarterly Pitch Nights, the founders network will gather for informal networking. During the Pitch Night, founders will provide authentic feedback to each other on their pitches and readiness to raise venture capital. 

These events are free thanks to the generous sponsorship of our partners. For more information about sponsorship, please visit our prospectus. 

Deals & Perks

Members will gain access to deals and perks for valuable startup growth tools including software, coworking spaces, and more.

Who is Eligible to Join the Network?
