IBJ Podcast: How a local tech pioneer is trying to save a once-promising Indy startup

March 25, 2019

Just a few years ago, Fishers-based SteadyServ Technologies was among the most-ballyhooed startups in state history.

But the company—which sells data-analytics software for bars and restaurants—has burned through more than $30 million in capital and perennially underachieved, leading it to file for bankruptcy earlier this year.

So why is tech veteran David Becker—a serial entrepreneur who serves as CEO of Fishers-based First Internet Bancorp—stepping in to try to save it?

IBJ Editor Greg Andrews dives into the story, explaining what Becker sees in SteadyServ—where he's now the co-CEO—and why one of the company's biggest, long-term investors is skeptical about its new direction.

You can read more details in Andrews' story in this week's IBJ.
