Anvl Inc., a workforce-safety software company, announced Wednesday that it plans to move from Indianapolis to Fishers in late August and add up to 41 high-wage jobs there by the end of 2022.

Anvl, which markets safety software to help reduce and prevent injuries for front-line workers in hazardous environments, was launched out of Indianapolis-based venture studio High Alpha in October.

The company has been operating in downtown Indianapolis but has plans to spend $125,000 to establish long-term office space in the Meyer Najem building at 11787 Lantern Road. The company will lease about 2,400 square feet of space there.

Last month, the company announced it had raised $2 million in seed funding from Washington, D.C.-based Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund, High Alpha Capital and a number of experienced tech leaders and angel investors, including Fishers entrepreneur Steve Cage.

The company has nearly doubled its workforce since June, when it reported to IBJ it had eight employees.

Anvl’s software system identifies leading indicators of workplace injury by capturing and analyzing environmental and process data in real time, enabling interventions at the point of risk. Managers have access to a live feed of safety information from their workforce, which is used to gain insight into potential safety issues. The overall system is designed to help improve safety programs by creating unified communications between workers and leaders and identifying improvement opportunities.

“What we are doing at Anvl is really important work,” Fleming said in written comments. “Our innovative software helps companies modernize their safety programs by engaging and helping front-line workers be safer. Support from the entire Indiana business ecosystem is critical to help companies like Anvl grow and create value for our employees and customers.”

The Indianapolis Economic Development Corp. offered Anvl up to $900,000 in conditional tax credits based on the job-creation plans. The incentives hinge on the company’s ability to reach hiring goals.

The city of Fishers is the lease holder for the space, and its redevelopment commission on Tuesday approved a sublease agreement with Anvl. The city also offered incentives that include a $10,000 grant for office furniture and construction of a private nursing room in the space.

“Under Robin’s leadership, Anvl is disrupting its industry, and Fishers is excited to be part of the next chapter of their growth,” Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness said in written comments. “The Anvl team joins the growing network of entrepreneurial companies in Fishers, and we look forward to working alongside them for many years to come.”
