The STARTedUP Foundation empowers a generation of leaders with an “opportunities are everywhere” mindset, fueling innovation and hope for our communities, country and world. The STARTedUP Foundation began in a classroom with one teacher inspiring students to view the world differently and, since 2018, has expanded statewide, engaging over 6000 students in the past five years. In 2018, STARTedUP and the Indiana Economic Development Corp. launched Innovate WithIN, the country’s largest and most elite high school pitch competition.
