KSM Partners With Technology Leaders Across the State to Launch New Advocacy Group

Posted 8:00 PM by


Today, at the Indiana Statehouse, nearly 100 technology companies from across the state gathered to announce the launch of the Indiana Technology & Innovation Association (ITIA). The organization will serve as Indiana’s voice for technology in the public policy and political arenas and will advocate for priorities critical to the success of the technology industry. Katz, Sapper & Miller is proud to serve as a founding member of the organization, with Erin Eberly, co-chair of the firm’s Technology Industry Services Group, on the board.

Companies ranging from start-up to Fortune 500 have vocalized their support:

“Salesforce is a founding member of the Indiana Technology & Innovation Association because we want to be proactive in working with state leaders to ensure Indiana continues to be a thriving environment for our industry to grow. With over 1,800 employees in Indiana and plans to continue growing here, this is an investment in our ability to attract and retain talent.”
- Bob Stutz, CEO, Marketing Cloud & Chief Analytics Officer, Salesforce

“Working alongside others on issues like the Next Level Fund and SaaS taxation over the last couple years, it became clear to me that our industry needs to have a consistent presence at the Statehouse and have ongoing conversations with executive and legislative branch policymakers as they work to navigate our new and complex issues.”
- John McDonald, CEO, ClearObject

“Our goal is for ITIA to provide value and a seat at the table for the “backpack and an idea” entrepreneurs and the tech giants. As I’ve traveled the state meeting with tech entrepreneurs over the last few years, there’s a real interest in becoming more engaged in policy discussions that impact their ability to succeed.”
- John Wechsler, Creator of the Indiana IoT Lab and Launch Fishers
