WATCH: Verge Organizer Jordan Updike Discusses Indiana’s Growth on IIB


Last week, Verge organizer and all around stud Jordan Updike made a visit to Inside Indiana Business to chat with Gerry Dick and Ike Willett about the growth of Indiana’s tech sector and the new capital the Circle City is seeing because of it.

“The beautiful thing is we’re starting to get a reputation as an area that’s putting out quality companies and quality work.”

– Jordan Updike

Perhaps the greatest evidence of this comes from the Innovation Showcase. In the past six years, this event has grown from a small, niche event to a startup spectacle that attracts tech companies from across the country. This year, we had a record number of exhibitor applications, a record number of sponsors, and tomorrow we will be awarding a record number of cash and prizes to our winners.

This year’s event is one you definitely won’t want to miss. This year, we’ll be hearing 60 second pitches from over 80 companies, all of whom are vying for north of $120k in prizes and funding. The showcase is tomorrow at the Dallara IndyCar Factory, and space is going to be limited so get your tickets now!
