How to Use This Community as a Lifeline + More than 400 Already Registered

Happy Friday!
Scott had built two exploding revenue streams that fueled his Inc-500 businesses. But when he went to his first Verge event, Scott and his team were just trying to survive a recession.
After losing two thirds of their revenue, Scott Hill and his co-founder Andy Medley were able to bounce back.  They did it through Midwestern hard work and innovative thinking. But they also called in a lifeline.
In my candid interview with Hill, he credits Indy’s startup community for providing an extra foundation for growth. Scott shares how the comeback was fueled by mentorship from well-known community leaders—and former Verge presenters—like Frank Dale, Kevin Bailey, Amanda Cross, Bill Godfrey and Michael Cloran.
It’s an amazing story of tenacity and I’m looking forward to diving in deeper next Wednesday night on stage with Scott, his co-founder Andy, and Verge founder Matt Hunckler. Our community has come a long way from the 8 people at Hill’s first Verge event to close to 2,500 Verge members we now have nationwide.
With well over 400 people already registered, next week’s Verge pitch night will be packed.
We’re pulling in the state’s brightest entrepreneurial marketing minds to celebrate Scott and Andy’s rebrand and launch of the refreshed PERQ headquarters. We have a special lineup for you:

  • Mike Langellier, co-founder of MyJibe and TechPoint CEO, will share his story of growing with the Indy startup community
  • Scott Hill will pitch PERQ's new FATWIN technology
  • PERQ co-founders Andy Medley and Scott Hill will Join Matt Hunckler and myself for an intimate firside chat, where we'll take live Q&A from twitter and the audience

The fresh digs may now be the most impressive office space in in the Midwest. But it’s not just a cool place to hang. There’s some serious depth behind the brand and  meticulous attention to driving business goals through design.
Profit calculators with current financials and sales leaderboards deck the walls (open-book management is a key component to their business engine). And the state’s largest chalkboard wall has great company in the numerous 50-foot murals that represent PERQ core values.
I hope you’ll come check it out. Or at least catch the livestream on the Verge facebook page and conversation on twitter.
Cheers,
Alec
