Don’t Just Take It From Us
“I always liked the saying by naturalist John Burroughs: ‘Leap and the net will appear.’ I did that, and I keep on doing it. Every time I jump, I’ve been fortunate to find a net in the form of funding, mentoring and customers.”
“We see education as part of our mission, and we want to bring impact to our area.”
“Helping people find their purpose creates a strong society. Small businesses are the lifeblood of the American economy, and focusing on their growth is key to our future as a state and nation. Helping Hoosiers reach their potential is a really great plan to start”
“Because of all the people who have helped me, I want to try and give back to the community as much as humanly possible”
“Growing my business was such an exciting opportunity for me. Now I’m looking at: how can I both inspire and facilitate others in following their dreams?”
We provide a robust network of advisors, accelerators and targeted programs to start and grow a business across the state. We are meeting entrepreneurs where they are and getting them the support they need.
