From the Indy 500 to gorgeous Monument Circle to the tasty food scene, there’s a lot to like about Indianapolis for founders and tech professionals.

We know we’re a little biased here at Powderkeg, since Indy is our home base – but the city’s thriving tech scene, high quality of life metrics, and low cost of living speak for themselves:

Recently, an initiative called Life in Indy launched a new site that showcases all there is to love about Indianapolis – including a comparative cost of living calculator that shows how much you could save by moving here. We’re seeing more and more Unvalley cities take this approach.

And if you want to be part of Indianapolis’s upcoming Civic Hackathon, where coders work on community initiatives for government agencies, mark your calendar for August 13th (you can participate virtually!)
