In the News
Indy is leading a technology transformation in the Midwest. Central Indiana has recently generated $7 billion in acquisitions and IPOs from more than two dozen tech companies including Angie’s List, ExactTarget (now Salesforce), and Interactive Intelligence (now Genesys). Our growth hasn’t gone unnoticed: Time Magazine’s Money said we are one of the top “20 hottest cities” within the technology industry. Check out why Forbes is talking about Indianapolis as the tech and infrastructure city on the rise. Between a Top Three Best Startup City ranking, a huge leap on the charts for Best Places to Live, and the #1 spot on CNBC’s list of top states for infrastructure, we’re starting to blush over here.
Indy’s new innovation district, 16 Tech, is located just three miles northwest of downtown. The 50-acre live-work-innovate community brings together entrepreneurs, academics, startups, corporations, and creatives in a single place designed to spark the exchange of ideas that lead to innovation.
The innovation district opened its first building in August, home to Indiana Biosciences Research Institute, IU School of Medicine, and the Central Indiana Community Partnership and its initiatives. HqO, the innovation hub at the heart of the district, is set to open in 2021. Located in the former headquarters of the Indianapolis Water Company, HqO will boast three unique activity centers including a makerspace, artisan marketplace, and flexible/private office space powered by national incubator 1776.
The development will change the landscape of Indianapolis over the next 10 years. By 2030, 16 Tech will be home to:
- $500 million in investment
- 50 acres of mixed-use community space
- 15 acres of greenspace
- 3 miles of trails
- More than 750 housing units
- 3 million square feet of development including office, lab, retail, and residential
- 3,000 jobs in the tech life sciences and advanced manufacturing
