Scale-Ups

Be the next tech success story.

We identify high-potential scale-up stage companies and expand their pool of available growth resources by connecting them with talent, venture capital, customers, and promotion - ingredients they need to become Indiana's future market-leading major employers.

Tech scale-ups are economic drivers.

Between 2009 and 2012, 35% of U.S. jobs were created by 2% of companies. Scale-ups are the relatively young, rapidly emerging, innovation-driven companies that have the potential to be Indiana's next market-leading major employers.
