Web Design Firm Planning Growth in New Indy Office

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

Aero Interactive is celebrating the opening of its new headquarters in downtown Indianapolis. The web design, development and branding firm says the office will accommodate its growing staff, which doubled in size in 2017.

Aero Interactive tells Inside INdiana Business it has invested $180,000 into the expansion. The firm currently employs six full-time and six part-time employees and plans to add an additional 19 full-time positions over the next five years.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. has offered Aero Interactive up to $165,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $35,000 in training grants based on the firm's job creation plans.

"I am incredibly proud of our growth and continued success in our third year of operation," said Lindsey Jones, chief executive officer of Aero Interactive. "It is very important for me to create an inspiring and supportive work environment for my employees. I truly believe that a happy and inspired team will provide the best quality work and service to our clients. We are committed this philosophy as we continue to grow."

The incentives offered by the IEDC are performance-based, which means Aero Interactive will not be able to claim them until Hoosiers are hired. Jones founded the firm in 2014. Aero counts tech startup Lumavate, the Hamilton County Humane Society and Chicago-based Hyde Park Venture Partners among its clients.
