A Fishers-based software company has announced plans to scale up. Anvl, which has created a platform designed to reduce and prevent workplace-related injuries, says it will invest $125,000 to establish a permanent office in the Hamilton County city and create up to 41 jobs by the end of 2022. Anvl is a spin-off of Indianapolis-based venture studio High Alpha and last month completed a $2 million seed round of funding.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says Anvl plans to move into its permanent office space in the Meyer Najem building in Fishers late next month. The company says it has nearly doubled its workforce since June.
"What we are doing at Anvl is really important work," Robin Fleming, co-founder and chief executive officer of Anvl, said in a news release. "Our innovative software helps companies modernize their safety programs by engaging and helping front-line workers be safer. Support from the entire Indiana business ecosystem is critical to help companies like Anvl grow and create value for our employees and customers. Our entire team is passionate about our mission and excited to be part of the growing technology and business community in Indiana."
The IEDC has offered Anvl up to $900,000 in conditional tax credits, which the company will not be eligible to claim until Hoosiers are hired for the new jobs. The city of Fishers has approved additional incentives as well.
"Under Robin’s leadership, Anvl is disrupting its industry, and Fishers is excited to be part of the next chapter of their growth," said Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness. "The Anvl team joins the growing network of entrepreneurial companies in Fishers, and we look forward to working alongside them for many years to come."
In November, Fleming appeared on Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick to talk about the company. You can watch the full interview by clicking the link below:
