PEOPLE FOR URBAN PROGRESS is an Indianapolis-based social enterprise that advances good design and civic sustainability by developing products and projects in connectivity, responsible reuse, and making. Simply put, we are Citizen Design Champions.
PUP is a do-tank. We turn useless into useful. We're the not-for-profit that turned the RCA Dome roof into wallets, messenger bags and shade structures. We turned Bush Stadium seats into bus stops.
We take the money made from our locally-designed and manufactured products to fund bigger projects and ideas that enhance the city's quality-of-life, connectedness, and design culture.
