If you missed the Verge July pitch night, or were you there and just want to relive the action, here’s a quick rundown of some of the best pics, tweets, and quotes from the night.

Over 150 members of the Verge community packed Speak Easy to connect with each other and the entrepreneurial action in Indy.


After entrepreneurs from great teams around the city like DeveloperTown, Digital Relevance, bizprops, Expected Behavior, Venture Camp and dozens more got to connect over local pizza and beer, the night’s programming kicked off when Matt Hunckler officially passed the torch to Alec Synnestvedt for his first Verge pitch night as our executive director.


Like the Indianapolis tech community, Verge’s future looks bright–and now Alec is our full-time resource to help us take Verge to the next level. Our community has exploded, and Matt will continue to work with Alec to ensure Verge continues to seek validation and knowledge for technology entrepreneurs, support entrepreneurial ecosystems everywhere and celebrate success as we grow.


Then, your 2013 Innovation Showcase Company of the year, Emphymab Biotech, took the stage for our first pitch of the night.


  Next up, we had a demo of the one, the only, Google Glass, by local development shop Sonar Studios.


Followed by an incredibly informative fireside chat panel on “What Startups Need to Know about IP Today” with amazing panelists David Wong of Barnes & Thornburg, Jim Gatto of Pillsbury, and Dustin DuBois of Ice Miller. They discussed current changes in IP law and offered key insights and learning from their work with some of technology’s brightest stars.


And the panel made sure to give some major props to Indy as well.

Next month’s Verge event is going to be a great one with an awesome Indy community startup that we’re thrilled to partner with. Stay tuned and follow @VergeIndy for lots of exciting updates coming up and to connect with the entrepreneurial action in Indy until our next pitch night.
