High Alpha



Scott Dorsey is hoping to help build Indianapolis into a tech hub.




Dorsey was the cofounder of Indianapolis-based ExactTarget, which Salesforce bought in 2013 for $2.5 billion.




He now runs a venture firm and startup studio in the city called High Alpha that's helping to build and fund the next-generation of Indianapolis-based tech companies.




The city has many features that make it an attractive place for tech, particularly enterprise software firms, including a wealth of talent and proximity to plenty of Fortune 500 companies looking for technological solutions to their business problems, he said.

If you were asked to name the top tech hubs in the US, you'd probably list San Francisco or Silicon Valley, New York, and maybe Boston, Seattle, or Austin.
Scott Dorsey is hoping that someday soon you'll include Indianapolis on that list.
Indiana's state capital has all the right ingredients to become a tech center, according to Dorsey, a managing partner at High Alpha, a venture firm and startup studio based there. Dorsey knows first-hand that the city can foster innovation. He founded and helped build cloud marketing service provider ExactTarget in the city before selling the company to Salesforce in 2013 for $2.5 billion.
