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. Liberals do not understand that marriage is not about a law or a right ... it is a rite of religous faith. Liberals want "legal" recognition of their homosexual relationship ... which is OK by me ... but it will never be classified as a marriage because marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. You can gain / obtain legal recognition / status ... but most people will not acknowledge that 2 people of the same sex are married. It's not really possible as long as marriage is defined as one man and one woman.

  2. That second phrase, "...nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens..." is the one. If you can't understand that you lack a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and I can't help you. You're blind with prejudice.

  3. Why do you conservatives always go to the marrying father/daughter, man/animal thing? And why should I keep my sexuality to myself? I see straights kissy facing in public all the time.

  4. I just read the XIV Amendment ... I read where no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property ... nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens ... I didn't see anything in it regarding the re-definition of marriage.

  5. I worked for Community Health Network and the reason that senior leadership left is because they were not in agreement with the way the hospital was being ran, how employees were being treated, and most of all how the focus on patient care was nothing more than a poster to stand behind. Hiring these analyst to come out and tell people who have done the job for years that it is all being done wrong now...hint, hint, get rid of employees by calling it "restructuring" is a cheap and easy way out of taking ownership. Indiana is an "at-will" state, so there doesn't have to be a "reason" for dismissal of employment. I have seen former employees that went through this process lose their homes, cars, faith...it is very disturbing. The patient's as well have seen less than disireable care. It all comes full circle.
