Indianapolis-based Tinderbox Inc., a provider of sales and marketing software, announced Tuesday morning that it plans to add 95 jobs by 2016 as part of a $540,000 expansion.

The company, 5255 Winthrop Ave. in the Meridian-Kessler area, said the investment will help expand its cloud-based platform business. Tinderbox already is hiring for sales, client support and software, and product-development positions.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. said it will provide Tinderbox up to $1.4 million in performance-based tax credits and up to $55,000 in training grants based on the company’s job-creation plans. The city of Indianapolis will consider additional property tax abatements.

“It was an easy decision to choose Indiana as the place to expand with its growing high-tech sector and stable business climate,” Dustin Sapp, founder and president of Tinderbox, said in a prepared statement. “We’re looking forward to a successful future of economic impact here in Indianapolis.”

Tinderbox provides software that helps companies create and save sales proposals online. Its clients include Indianapolis-based Angie's List Inc.

The company was founded in 2010 by entrepreneurs Sapp, Kristian Andersen and Mike Fitzgerald with personal savings and $150,000 from five angel investors.

  1. The deductible is entirely paid by the POWER account. No one ever has to contribute more than $25/month into the POWER account and it is often less. The only cost not paid out of the POWER account is the ER copay ($8-25) for non-emergent use of the ER. And under HIP 2.0, if a member calls the toll-free, 24 hour nurse line, and the nurse tells them to go to the ER, the copay is waived. It's also waived if the member is admitted to the hospital. Honestly, although it is certainly not "free" - I think Indiana has created a decent plan for the currently uninsured. Also consider that if a member obtains preventive care, she can lower her monthly contribution for the next year. Non-profits may pay up to 75% of the contribution on behalf of the member, and the member's employer may pay up to 50% of the contribution.

  2. I wonder if the governor could multi-task and talk to CMS about helping Indiana get our state based exchange going so Hoosiers don't lose subsidy if the court decision holds. One option I've seen is for states to contract with healthcare.gov. Or maybe Indiana isn't really interested in healthcare insurance coverage for Hoosiers.

  3. So, how much did either of YOU contribute? HGH Thank you Mr. Ozdemir for your investments in this city and your contribution to the arts.

  4. So heres brilliant planning for you...build a $30 M sports complex with tax dollars, yet send all the hotel tax revenue to Carmel and Fishers. Westfield will unlikely never see a payback but the hotel "centers" of Carmel and Fishers will get rich. Lousy strategy Andy Cook!

  5. AlanB, this is how it works...A corporate welfare queen makes a tiny contribution to the arts and gets tons of positive media from outlets like the IBJ. In turn, they are more easily to get their 10s of millions of dollars of corporate welfare (ironically from the same people who are against welfare for humans).
