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. On my rental property, before tax caps, I was paying $2,000/yr in property taxes. After the tax caps I'm paying $4,000/yr. How exactly am I "benefiting the most"?

  2. Nick, I too tried that new Walmart NM on Michigan a couple of weeks ago. I had the same feeling, it had good prices, but something was just off about it. I can't put my finger on what it is, but it just didn't feel right. On the plus side, it was easy to get in and out of and much less busy than a typical Walmart.
