Two tech firms located in Northwest Technology Center in Zionsville plan to invest nearly $3.6 million to create 314 jobs over the next four years, economic development officials announced Wednesday morning.

Mobi Wireless Management LLC, a spinoff of Zionsville-based Bluefish Wireless Management, plans to add 253 employees by 2014, according to the Indiana Economic Development Corp.

Mobi expects to invest $3.3 million in technology upgrades at its headquarters at Zionsville Road and West 96th Street. It plans to begin hiring additional service consultants, operations managers and software engineers by the end of 2010.

Indianapolis-based Bostech Corp., which develops health information software, plans to hire 61 software engineers and sales consultants over the next three years. Ten of those hires should come in 2010, it said.

The IEDC offered Mobi up to $2.9 million in performance-based tax credits and $100,000 in training grants based on its job-creation plans.

Bostech was offered up to $750,000 in performance-based tax credits based on job-creation plans. 

Boone County will consider providing tax-increment-finance funds to assist the companies with equipment purchases at the request of the Boone County Economic Development Corp.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
