INDIANAPOLIS -

A new organization focused on boosting entrepreneurship throughout the state will hold its first event Wednesday before a sold out crowd at The Union 525 in Indianapolis. INfuze Indiana's mission is to bring together stakeholders from all walks of the startup ecosystem for what it describes as consistent, local community events discussing top issues. The keynote speaker at the inaugural gathering will be longtime Indiana venture capitalist Jane Martin.

Fishers-based ClearObject Corp. CEO John McDonald, a co-founder of INfuze Indiana, will moderate the event, which will also feature conversations with Carmel-based Allos Ventures Managing Partner Don Aquilano, Bloomington-based The Bee Corp. Chief Executive Officer Ellie Symes and Indianapolis-based Scale Computing CEO Jeff Ready.

In an interview at the Inside INdiana Business Launch Fishers Bureau, INfuze Indiana co-founder Kara Kavensky said there are ongoing discussions about hosting more events in several communities throughout the state. Kavensky says Fort Wayne, Lafayette, Bloomington, Terre Haute, South Bend, Evansville and others could be next. "Every community is a little bit different on what they are wanting to talk about," she said. "It is all around this element of supporting their startup community, but maybe the conversations differ a little bit."
