It’s an exciting time to be part of the tech world, especially here in the great state of Indiana. We are known to grow things, to make things, and to move things. Through tech, we are also leading to transform things. The biggest opportunity in front of our tech community is to make tech a competitive edge for every Hoosier, every Indiana company and every community within our state. Why?
Because we are in a digital economy.
Because 92 percent of all jobs in Indiana today require digital skills.
Because rising prosperity, that is for Hoosiers to attain a higher standard of living, primarily comes from productivity growth driven by technology.
Led by industry, we are uniquely positioned as a trusted partner at the intersection of public, private and academic sectors. We help grow Indiana’s tech ecosystem; we use the term “ecosystem” because we believe that the growth of tech comes through the interconnectedness of talent, innovation, and community.
With declining college enrollment numbers and ever-growing and changing needs for talent in our tech ecosystem, Indiana stands upon the edge of a talent cliff. This serious issue calls for us to drastically rethink and reshape how we handle talent attraction and retention. Over the last decade TechPoint has created and refined talent programs intended to do just that.
Our holistic talent strategies start with skills alignment between employers and educators through skills pathways. Careers in tech outreach programs touches K12, higher-ed and non-traditional learners.
For experiential learning, our Xtern and Xplore programs target late-high school through late-college talent to help attract them to and keep them part of the Indiana tech ecosystem.
Our Adult Apprenticeship program strives to widen our talent pools and inclusively open pathways to tech careers. And our Leadership Academy aims to develop mid-level talent by equipping tech and business skilled professionals with ready-to-use tactics and tools to effectively manage both projects and people.
All of these talent programs are meant to work in concert to help achieve TechPoint’s Mission41K, a call to the Indiana tech community to add 41,000 tech workers to our ecosystem by the year 2030.
TechPoint works to help foster connections in the world of innovation through our statewide CIO network.
Founders and investors build growth momentum through Founders Network, Venture Support, Venture Connect, and Butler Accelerator, the only national learning tech accelerator based in Indiana. Our VCI Marketplace connects buyers and sellers of Indiana Venture Capital Investment (VCI) tax credits. Tech continues dominate the venture industry.
