From Fast Company: In 2021, 159 venture capital deals totaling $1.4 billion, were reported in Indiana, the second highest of six Great Lakes states. And earlier this year, the U.S. government announced that Indiana is set to receive up to $99 million in federal funding, $70 million of which will be directed for startups and early-revenue companies. According to the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC), the state is one of the first 14 to be approved by the U.S. Department of Treasury for the State Small Business Credit Initiative. But it’s not just money that makes Indiana a fertile place for entrepreneurs. Indiana’s secret sauce comes from the depth of resources and the supportive ecosystem available for startups and entrepreneurs—and the ability for all to connect. The state’s economic engine is geared towards innovation with preseed, seed, and early-stage funding available through Elevate Ventures, which in addition to having invested $146.9M in nearly 500 startups since 2011, has been the most active VC in the Great Lakes region since 2017 according to PitchBook.
