New goals for a new year

It’s a new year, and whether we make hard-and-fast resolutions or more squishy wouldn’t-it-be-great goals, most of us can’t avoid imagining what 2013 will bring.

But let’s set aside the perennial eat-less-move-more ambitions for something with a little more entrepreneurial flair: What problems are you going to solve this year, and how can Indianapolis’ startup community support your aspirations?

Share your plans for the year here—and keep us all posted on your progress. There’s nothing as inspiring as success.

  • Keep on truckin'
    At Snappening.com, we hope to continue our growth and development in 2013 in the areas of new service lines (photographers) and new cities (expanding across Indiana and into Kentucky, Ohio, etc) We hope Indy continues to provide tech resources and talent to make that possible.
  • LumenCache
    LumenCache is a new lighting solution that takes advantage of the benefits of LEDs without the baggage and problems associated with supporting the 100-yr old AC power grid. View the 2-minute video at www.lumencache.com. We're ending our 12-month Angel round in February and beginning the $2MM Round A. Doing a tech startup in Indy is VERY challenging. We may keep the production jobs here but far more interest and help from outside Indy.
  • Coffee trucks
    I'm no entrepreneur, but I post this in hopes that someone who is will realize the time is right for a truck(s) that drives the street, a la ice cream trucks, with fresh coffee and pastries. Could extend the revenue-producing hours for an already-existing food truck? Hundreds of thousands of caffeine addicts eagerly await this innovation.
  • My goal
    My 2013 is to leave Indy for a city where people are a little more secure with themselves and their community. The incessant, childish boosterism here, along with the call for the taxpayer to fund these money-losing schemes so that a small majority of us can feel big league, is wearing thin. Indy used to be a unique city. We've lost a great deal trying to be something we're not. I've identified my new home, a city of similar size with core jobs, you know, the kind that actually create something instead of merely siphon money from the taxpayer to quasi-governmental "companies" that add no value at all.
  • MY HOPE
    I wish my business have a bright future in 2013..come on!

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
