Two Indiana tech companies creating more than 50 jobs
INDIANAPOLIS — Two technology companies announced plans to expand their operations in Central Indiana, creating more than 50 new high-wage jobs over the next few years and continuing a trend of tech growth in the Hoosier state.
“Indiana’s tech industry is on the move, and the nation is taking notice,” said Jim Schellinger, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. “The Indianapolis area was recently ranked second in the nation for tech grads and fifth in the nation for women in technology. Today’s news from Innolance and Matchbook Creative further solidifies our prominence as a leader in technology, and we’re proud that these innovators and entrepreneurs continue to choose Indiana for growth and high-paying job creation.”
Innolance, a Sterling, Virginia-based tech company, will invest $301,700 to locate its first Midwest office in Fishers within the next three months. The mobile application developer is opening its new Indiana office in the co-working space Launch Fishers, which recently relocated to a new 52,000-square-foot facility.
Matchbook Creative, a registered Women Business Enterprise, will invest $581,000 to expand its Indianapolis-based headquarters, renovating a new two-story building at 1317 N. Pennsylvania St. on the Old Northside. The new facility will more than double the strategic branding and advertising firm’s office space to 7,000 square feet, and will also include 5,000 square feet of rental space for commercial tenants.
