About Start Fort Wayne

We are a nonprofit founded in 2015 to help entrepreneurs launch their ventures and to drive startup culture in northeast Indiana. We have projects & programs in three areas: community (driving culture), education (coaching & coding), and space (coworking space).

We are a nonprofit but interact regularly in the corporate space. We tend to operate with a laid-back vibe, but we’re serious about our mission and impact. We are changing the way northeast Indiana does entrepreneurship, and we need a passionate person with the skills to back it up, to help us drive.

You know how to strike a balance between throwing out creative solutions, engaging a diverse community, and getting on with getting things done. You understand Start Fort Wayne’s mission and values, and work toward our shared goals.
