Fishers has been a spectacular city to scale our startup for multiple reasons. Both Jordin and Megan from the Economic Development team have been very helpful since day one with answering questions, inviting us to local business-focused events, and even helping us locate furniture for our new office off of I-69. Outside of that, our team has thoroughly enjoyed all that the community offers and we look forward to continuing our growth in Fishers!

Not only do I call Fishers home, but my business, ROI Search Group, has found a home here, as well. My experiences with Mayor Scott Fadness and the ED team have been organized, professional, and are an easy partnership. The community and culture they represent lends itself to empower entrepreneurs and invest in their thriving growth as well as a vibrant quality of life.

The open concept of the Lab, combined with it housing other technology start-ups, means there’s always opportunity for collaboration, for technical discussions, and the like. Additionally, there are always other technical or ntrepreneurial people coming through the Lab, so we’re always networking and connecting with other entrepreneurial people in the Fishers and Indiana technology community.
