Jim Jay, president and CEO of statewide technology advocacy group TechPoint for the past six years, is stepping down to take a job in the private sector.

Jay, 43, is leaving the Indianapolis-based organization to become chairman, president and CEO of San Diego-based Vinculum Communication Inc., he said Sunday in a letter announcing the move to TechPoint board members.

He will remain at TechPoint through Oct. 31, he said.

"While Vinculum is based in San Diego, I will remain based in Indianapolis," Jay said in the letter. "The company generates $40 million a year in revenue and has been funded by several central Indiana investors, including me. This opportunity will allow me tap my own entrepreneurial desires. "

Jay joined TechPoint in 2004 as chief operating officer and replaced Cameron Carter as CEO in late 2006.
 
The state's best-known technology promotional group, TechPoint was formed in 2002 when the former Indiana Information Technology Association merged with the Indiana Technology Partnership. The group is part of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership, which includes economic growth initiatives BioCrossroads, Conexus Indiana, Energy Systems Network and Indy Partnership.

“Under Jim’s leadership, TechPoint has truly become the voice of Indiana’s technology sector,” said TechPoint Chairman Mark Hill in a prepared statement. “He’s focused on the issues that matter to tech employers, investors and entrepreneurs – workforce development, access to capital, a pro-innovation public policy agenda and more.”

Jay also is managing director of HALO Capital Group, an early-stage funding group directed by TechPoint that makes seed investments between $250,000 to $2 million to Indiana based companies. The group has invested more than $19 million in 14 companies in the past four years.

CICP and TechPoint leaders said Monday morning that they have begun a search process for Jay's successor.

  1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
