Kinetic is where entrepreneurship, venture capital and community converge. We are connected in part by an interest in how these forces, when moving together in the same direction, can impact individuals, businesses and the state of Indiana. Entrepreneurial ecosystems are taking root across Indiana. Join us at Kinetic to help fuel the growth.

Our inaugural Kinetic conference was held May 1-2, 2018. Whether you want to read about a session you missed or you simply couldn’t make it, we encourage you to check out a few highlights here.
