Recap of Monday's Event and Verge Going Foward

Happy Saturday, Startup Fanatics!

Monday night was incredible. I'm so impressed that 250+ of you braved the ice storm to join us for the launch of MyJibe and Verge, the new brand for Hackers and Founders.

There reviews and write ups keep pouring in. You can check some of them out here:

Videos of presentations from Monday's Verge event will be up by the end of next week. Thanks again to Jon Corwin for all the photography and video he does for each event. 

I also want to give a very special thank you to Cantaloupe TV, who created the fun Verge launch video we all saw at the Earth House on Monday. In case you missed it, here it is:­


MyJibe is Live!

MyJibe was well-receive by everyone who came out to celebrate the launch. For those who couldn't make it down, Mike wants to make sure you can get the same deal as those who were in the room that evening. So, for a free trial of MyJibe's killer software, please send an email 


Why Verge?

We rebranded to Verge because, as a startup community, we’ve become our own thing (Hackers & Founders is originally a Silicon-Valley-based event, from which we borrowed the name). Our events aren’t really anything like the the Hackers and Founders meetups they have out in the Valley and in NYC. Nothing against what they’re doing — we just wanted to own our identity and to provide more of a vision going forward.

Our identity is Verge because our entrepreneurial environment is on the brink of new ideas, software products, and business success. We’ve created this monthly event that’s a convergence of the talent and innovation that fuels our startup community. We’re a little bit raw and uncut, and we like it that way. No frills — just good business and good times.


Now What?

The show will go on as usual! We're going to keep the same great vibe and event, just the way you like it. We'll have our meetup in February with our traditional 3-pitch format. Look for an announcement next week regarding date, time, and presenters. 

You can still follow us on Twitter. We've changed the @HFindy twitter handle to @VergeIndy. At the same time, our Hackers and Founders Facebook page got a facelift, but we'll soon be transitioning to a new Verge Facebook Page

Thanks for all your support and passion for the Indianapolis startup community. Let's make it even better this year. Please don't ever hesitate to share feedback and ideas for Verge. We're all ears.
