If you know anything about me, you know that I love the great city of Indianapolis. So much that I have often been referred to as a “homie” by my out-of-state friends. It has the offerings of a large city, but has a small town feel.
It looks like Indy is starting to show up on the national technology radar, and why wouldn’t we? We have some of the best schools in the nation, cheap living and a great place to have a family. There was an article just published on Online Media Daily in regards to the city’s technology sector. Even referring to us as “Silcon Prairie”. What the heck, we’ll take it.
With companies like ExactTarget, ChaCha, Aprimo, Made2Manage and a ton of other startups, Indianapolis is starting to look more like a Twitter social, rather than a 4-H gathering. This is not only great for our city, but also startups like SmartFile. By increasing our exposure, we make resources such as technical talent and venture capital more accessible.
So good job Indy! Let’s keep working hard to push the technology envelope.
