Zionsville-based tech company Boosterville is under new ownership. The company, which uses a digital platform to connect nonprofits with local merchants, has been acquired by Kentucky-based Beyond. As a result of the deal, Boosterville’s platform will be rebranded as Chip-In. Beyond says the acquisition furthers its mission "to strengthen businesses and communities across the country."
Beyond develops products designed to streamline processes for small and mid-sized companies, including payment processing, employee management, point-of-sale, and lending. The addition of Chip-In will expand the company into the nonprofit sector.
"We believe the acquisition of Boosterville will be instrumental in our company’s continued growth," said Robert Carr, chief executive officer of Beyond. "Our new Chip-In program empowers local businesses to support non-profit groups in their community while also ensuring that support makes financial sense. In turn, non-profits play a key role in building a flourishing local business community by reciprocating and supporting those businesses with their collective buying power."
Beyond says Boosterville co-founders Pam and Tom Cooper, along with team member Jill Turcic, will join the Beyond team to continue to develop the Chip-In technology.
