Creating Kinetic

Elevate works and speaks from experience. In 2018, we were named the most active venture capital organization in the Great Lakes region. Over the past eight years, more than 285 companies have received investment or other funding from or through Elevate and over 2,000 companies were impacted by our advisory services.

Elevate is at the crossroads of entrepreneurship and innovation in the Midwest and we know how to launch and grow businesses in the Hoosier state. Every day, our expansive networks and expertise help founders progress, investors find deals, and regions across Indiana sow seeds of innovation.

Our inaugural Kinetic conference was held May 1-2, 2018.

“Kinetic 2018 proved to be both informative and enjoyable – from the range of educational sessions to the diverse networking opportunities,” said Joe Muldoon, CEO of FAST BioMedical, an Elevate portfolio company with patented late clinical stage technology measuring blood volume and kidney function. “Support like the Kinetic conference is what I love about Elevate Ventures. They have the confidence to attempt something completely new, just do it, and do it well!”
