April Pitch Night

We have a very special Verge Indy Pitch Night planned for April 24th, where we'll gather at DeveloperTown for a fast-paced evening of startup action, entrepreneurial learning, and connecting with the community that you won't want to miss. 

The Lineup


We have not just two, but three great 5-minute startup pitches coming your way:

• Social Sweepster, the tool that helps users monitor and clean up their online social presence. 

DCODIA, the discreet mobile solution designed to help dyslexic students read without the assistance of a parent, teacher or tutor.

• The Pocket Drone, the flying robot that promises to democratize the sky with aerial videography, GPS "follow me" guidance, and more. 

[Check out my sneak peek interview with The Pocket Drone's TJ Johnson for the backstory and Drone footage of DeveloperTown]

Fireside Chat

Isaac Willet, who is a Partner at Faegre Baker Daniels and helps lead the Venture Club of Indiana, co-organizes The Innovation Showcase with Verge and VisionTech Partners. Ike will join me on the Verge stage to discuss what he's learned about Indiana startups over the years working with The Innovation Showcase and to highlight what we're looking forward to this year. 

As always, we'll have plenty of beer from Upland Brewery and Pizza from Marco's on hand to fuel us.
