Sep 14, 2017 Susan Marshall
The 10 Indianapolis finalists to compete in Revolution’s RISE OF THE REST® with Steve Case, were announced today. I am pleased to write that Torchlite was selected as one of the 10.
From the organizers:
“Revolution’s RISE OF THE REST® with Steve Case is a nationwide effort to work closely with entrepreneurs in emerging startup ecosystems. Our view is that this is the beginning of a new era for entrepreneurship across the U.S. — high-growth companies can now start and scale anywhere, not just in a few coastal cities.”
It is an honor to be chosen among the hundreds of companies that applied to be a part of this competition, especially within the booming technology start-up scene in Indianapolis and all the attention we’ve received lately.
In the second quarter of 2017, we’ve been named one of the 6 best cities to start a business right now (Inc Magazine), one of 6 U.S. cities to watch in 2017 (Conde Nast Traveler) and one of the best states for Millennials (Money-Rates.com).
Indianapolis is an incredible place to launch and scale software, particularly in marketing technology. We have a lot of expertise concentrated here, from past executives to software developers and sales professionals. When you combine the access to top-notch talent and our accessibility to key markets like Chicago, San Francisco and New York, it’s easy to see why companies like Torchlite are able to grow and thrive.
