There is no GPS for navigating a business from idea to exit, which is why having access to unbiased perspectives, expert leadership, market research and strategic consulting services at Elevate Ventures can be valuable for entrepreneurs.
Our driving force is to see more and more high-potential businesses succeed in Indiana. As such, we have built a growing team of Elevate Ventures Entrepreneurs-in-Residence and Elevate Advisors across the state who actively advise Hoosiers at every stage of their business development. Our Entrepreneurs-in-Residence represent a deep, multifaceted range of entrepreneurial experiences and industries — from semiconductors to big data. And our Elevate Advisors further deepen the well of resources that a relationship with our team makes available to business owners.
