Do you know that Kelley School of Business Indianapolis is sitting square in the middle of the startup revolution?
And what if I told you that this revolution is bringing together the brightest minds in business, development, and design to create new ventures. It’s like the energy of Silicon Valley was bottled up and released in Indianapolis at these startup events.
Thousands of people are getting in on the startup love by pitching ideas, sharing feedback, and connecting with others at startup events that are drawing crowds of hundreds of passionate start-uppers.
Here’s how you can catch a glimpse of what’s going down:
At the heart of the entrepreneurial uprising, you’ll find groups like Verge, which provides startup news and startup events that draw crowds of hundreds of start-uppers. Verge isn’t alone in leading this entrepreneurial uprising; one of the Verge backers is a literal neighborhood of marketers, coders, and designers called Developer Town. Another hot spot in the startup community is one of the coolest places you could ever co-work at, The Speak Easy. This killer new spot is like discovery zone for entrepreneurs. Who wouldn’t want to get in on that?
Here’s how you can get involved:
1.) Watch a startup pitch,
Some of my favorites are uFlavor and Knowmingo
2.) Read the latest startup news
I recommend reading TechCrunch Startups, Inc, Startups, and of course Indy’s own Verge.
3.) Connect with startup groups on social media
Some of the real connectors in town are @VergeIndy, @IndyStartup, and @DeveloperTown.
These small steps eventually lead up to much bigger things like attending a startup event, connecting in the startup community in a nearby co-working space, or even participating in a Startup Weekend. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to start a business in 54 hours, then Startup Weekend is definitely the event for you.
