Elevate Ventures
Elevate Ventures nurtures and develops emerging and existing high-potential businesses into high-performing, Indiana-based companies. We accomplish this by providing rigorous business analysis and robust advisory services that connect companies with the resources they need to succeed long-term. As a not-for-profit organization, we are able to offer unbiased, in-depth perspective and recommendations.

At Elevate Ventures, we know that Indiana capital isn't always easy to come by. Because of that, we make every effort to make venture capital dollars more accessible to Indiana startups and entrepreneurs. One way we do that is through introductions to other venture capital firms and angel investors - and another way is through the management of three funds that provide venture capital-type investments to Indiana-based companies during their early stages of growth.
