[IEDC] Cloud-based Service Provider Adding Jobs in Indy
Start Date: 3/12/2013 All Day
End Date: 3/12/2013
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS (March 12, 2013) – Tinderbox, Inc., a sales and marketing software solutions provider, announced plans today to expand its operations here, creating up to 95 new jobs by 2016.

“High-tech, high-wage jobs at a homegrown company is the latest positive momentum for our economy,” said Governor Mike Pence. “More than anything else, job growth depends on building a pro-business environment, and Tinderbox’s decision reaffirms that Indiana is a place where high-tech business makes sense.”

Tinderbox plans to invest $540,000 to grow its cloud-based platform business in Indianapolis. The homegrown-Hoosier company is actively hiring sales, client success and support, software development and product development positions. Interested applicants can apply at www.gettinderbox.com/careers.

“The TinderBox product is helping our clients acquire a greater number of customers with a more efficient process. We’re thrilled to continue enhancing our solution, hiring new team members and expanding this service to additional markets,” said Dustin Sapp, founder and president of TinderBox. “It was an easy decision to choose Indiana as the place to expand with its growing high-tech sector and stable business climate. We’re looking forward to a successful future of economic impact here in Indianapolis.”

Launched in 2010 in Indianapolis, TinderBox provides software for sales and marketing teams to accelerate the customer acquisition process. The company entered the market as a proposal management platform that offered a method to reduce the time, inconsistency and uncertainty associated with sales proposals. Today, TinderBox services clients such as Angie’s List, Dominion Dealer Solutions and Delivra with a comprehensive management solution for marketing and sales content, including proposals, sales presentations and contracts.

"Tinderbox is a great success story illustrating our efforts to keep our homegrown Hoosier companies right here in Indianapolis,” said Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard. “Despite strong competition against cities in the Midwest and on the west coast, we have proven once again that our work in cultivating a strong and inviting business community brings results.”

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Tinderbox, Inc. up to $1,375,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $55,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis will consider additional property tax abatement at the request of Develop Indy.

About IEDC
Created in 2005 to replace the former Department of Commerce, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation is governed by a 12-member board chaired by Governor Mike Pence. Victor Smith serves as the Indiana Secretary of Commerce and Eric Doden is the president of the IEDC.

The IEDC oversees programs enacted by the General Assembly including tax credits, workforce training grants and public infrastructure assistance. All tax credits are performance-based. Therefore, companies must first invest in Indiana through job creation or capital investment before incentives are paid. A company who does not meet its full projections only receives a percentage of the incentives proportional to its actual investment. For more information about IEDC, visit www.iedc.in.gov.
