(August 3, 2015) – We’ve been in our new office space in the Nickel Plate building in Fishers, IN since the beginning of June. But I hadn’t necessarily felt completely settled in until we hosted our very first event last Thursday—thus, premiering the space and welcoming the public into the work home we’re so proud of.
But there was more to the event than just our new office. As a member of Verge, I was also ecstatic to host the many investors, entrepreneurs, developers, and tech professionals in the area in addition to local customers, leaders, and other friends of Bluebridge.
The evening was filled with great pizza, beer, and—in true Verge style—pitches. Matt Hunckler, Location Director and a founder of Verge, spoke about the new VergeHQ app provided by Bluebridge, while I pitched about Bluebridge’s Mobile App Studio and other exciting new innovations.
We were also joined by Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness and John Wechsler, the creator of Launch Fishers—a co-working launch pad for high-potential enterprises, which is where Bluebridge got its start. We wrapped up with a fireside chat between Matt and myself on how Bluebridge achieved its first $1M in recurring revenue, as well as ways to continue growing through fundraising, hiring, and more. #VergeHQ even climbed to the #2 trending topic on Twitter in Indianapolis during the event!
Here’s what a few people had to say about the launch party:
If you were one of the more than 250 guests at the event, we hope you had a great time! If you’re not local or you couldn’t make it, we certainly hope to host you in the future.
