More Than a Decade of Innovation + Investment

The Largest Gathering of Venture Capitalists in Indiana.

For 15 years, the Venture Club of Indiana has worked to attract investors interested in funding Indiana startup companies at its annual Innovation Showcase. The 2022 iteration of that event partners was driven by collaboration amongst TechPoint, 50 South Capital, which manages Indiana’s Next Level Fund, and Elevate Ventures to offer (Ind)Venture.

By partnering, the similarly focused groups turned their traditionally separate events into a three–day bonanza for investor groups from across the nation to network and meet one–on–one with Indiana’s most game–changing startups. 

We are proud to continue such tradition with key partners in 2023. This one-of-a-kind two-day, curated event series gives you a front row seat to connect with emergent, game-changing startups and other VCs and angel investors. Customize your schedule by individually registering for events, and plan your Indianapolis visit to span all two days! 

Who attends Indiana Venture Summit?

Founders and operators who seek to build innovation-driven, venture-backed, high-growth companies in Indiana. Our community is ready to be that sounding board. Such engagement may lead to connectivity to capital, customer or talent sources within our network and in our innovation community. When founders/operators succeed, our entire community benefits. 

Don’t wait too long to register! Space is limited for Innovation Showcase booth displays and pitch competition, and for Venture Connect.
