Leaders at Gruuv Technologies, an information technology engineering consulting firm, plan to invest $450,000 to expand its operations in Indianapolis, adding up to 29 new jobs by 2017. Launched in 2010 in Indianapolis with a pure focus on Microsoft engineering, Gruuv has since evolved into a firm focusing on systems, networks, virtual and physical data centers, technology strategy, and implementation and support services with clients across the country. It is currently hiring engineering, information technology, project management and sales associates.
Homegrown-Hoosier company Perceivant, LLC, a big data and real-time analytics platform, leaders will invest $309,000 in a leased location in Indianapolis, creating up to 49 new jobs by 2018. Serving underserved clients in the mid-market on a national scale, focusing on health and life sciences, higher education and financial services with its fully-hosted cloud solution, the company is actively hiring software engineers and information technology positions.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered the firms incentives based on their job creation plans: Ascension Health Shared Services, up to $4.8 million in conditional tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants; Bastian Automation Engineering, up to $375,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $50,000 in training grants; BlueBridge Digital, p to $1.85 million in conditional tax credits and up to $50,000 in training grants; Classic Alumadeck, up to $275,000 in conditional tax credits; DuCharme, McMillen & Associates, up to $425,000 conditional tax credits and up to $75,000 in training grants; Gruuv, up to $330,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $35,000 in training grants; Perceivant, up to $800,000 in conditional tax credits. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.
