Perscio promoting big data, big jobs
INDIANAPOLIS — Big data startup Perscio is expanding its operations in Indianapolis. The company, which helps businesses grow through the management and analysis of data, plans to add 48 jobs in the next five years.
“Look at Indiana’s recent tech boom and you’ll see that Hoosiers are driving the future of technology in this nation,” said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC). “Hoosiers are leading companies like Perscio and innovating new ways to drive business success, all while operating in an environment built for their growth in Indiana.”
Recognizing the limitless potential of Big Data opportunities, Perscio was founded by veteran tech sector CEO Bob Boehnlein in 2014. The company leverages open data sets, predictive analytics, sensor technologies and stunning visualizations to help clients transform their business. The team has several combined decades of experience in information technology, strategic planning and analytics, making it uniquely positioned with strong expertise in this budding landscape.
“We started Perscio out of a passion to make the world of Big Data more approachable and usable. Our goal is to make businesses grow faster using predictive analytics and open data sets,” said Boehnlein.
The company will create 48 new jobs with an average wage of $43 per hour by the end of 2019. In support of Perscio’s initiatives, the IEDC offered Perscio up to $775,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $60,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning that until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.
