Indianapolis Chapter Event: The Disruptive Effect of Technology on Government

April 28, 2016 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Triton Brewing Company

5764 Wheeler Road, Indianapolis,

We are pleased to host Matt Hunckler, business adventurist with a knack for online marketing, branding, and entrepreneurship.

Mr. Hunckler founded Verge, a network of 1,300 entrepreneurs, software developers and business investors in the Indianapolis area, Matthew Hunckler showed his entrepreneurial spirit. In high school, he started a business to digitize vinyl albums on CD and raised enough money to spend a month in Europe with a student ambassador group. As the records played, he taught himself Web design and, while at Indiana University, started a business called SureSite Design that he sold before graduation.

Hunckler’s next step was an Orr Fellowship that brought him to Bluelock, the cloud computing company. But even before arriving there, he continued to fuel his interest in entrepreneurship. He and two college buddies decided to round up friends once a month to talk about entrepreneurial opportunities.

Fewer than a dozen attended that first meeting at the Columbia Club. But the group grew and evolved into Verge, with Hunckler running the show.

As the Director of Marketing for Slingshot SEO, an Inc. 500 Marketing Agency, Matt built the Marketing and Communications department leveraging email marketing, SEO, PPC, social media, and PR to increase site traffic, leads, and sales.

Matt graduated with honors from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, where he studied Marketing, Entrepreneurship, and Corporate Innovation.

The focus of Mr. Hunckler’s remarks will be on the disruptive effect peer to peer technology and crowdsourcing has had on government regulation and oversight.

We’ll have drinks and small bites for those who socialize at 6:30 PM, and Mr. Hunckler will speak about 7:30 PM. We expect this event to reach capacity quickly. To help make sure those who want to attend will be able to, please RSVP as soon as possible for this social.

Once capacity is reached via RSVP, walk-ins will be granted entry on a first-come, first-served basis, starting at 7 PM the night of the event. Those who RSVP beforehand, but do not make it by 7 PM, will be added to that line.
