Where can you find hundreds of companies on display, over 100 speakers, six innovation studios, $5 million in prize funding all at one event?

The answer is RALLY

Created by Elevate Ventures, RALLY is a two-day conference happening in Indianapolis this August. As the largest global cross-sector innovation conference, RALLY is bringing together people from companies, universities, founders, and investors from around the globe. This year, the conference will be held on August 27th and 28th at the Indiana Convention Center.

Building on the momentum of last year’s inaugural conference, RALLY features many different events and ways to participate. This includes featured speakers, panel discussions, curated 1:1 meetups with investors, 6 innovation studios, a pitch competition, demo arena and more. 

Elevate Ventures invests in innovation-driven companies at Pre-Seed, Seed and Series A stages who are headquartered or have a significant presence in the state of Indiana, which has been growing as one of the top emerging tech hubs in the nation. The conference will be an exciting opportunity to show off Indianapolis' momentum as a tech hub to the world. 

“RALLY was one of the highest value conferences I attended in 2023 (and I attended many!). The intentional networking was next-level; everyone I met was there to create long-lasting connections and to help each other grow. The sessions were thought-provoking and left me feeling inspired and ready to take on the rest of my year. It blows my mind to think that one of the country’s best innovation conferences is taking place not in Silicon Valley or NYC, but right next door in Indianapolis. Don’t miss out on their second year back!” says Nicole McCarthy, Vice President of Innovation & Venture at World Business Chicago.


Who’s who at RALLY

With over 3,000 expected event attendees, RALLY is shaping up to be one of the nation’s largest tech conferences this year. 

Specifically, the event is designed to forge connections between founders and entrepreneurs, VCs and investors, C-suite executives and department leaders, thought leaders, advisors, policy makers, and people who make stuff happen. If you’re entrepreneurial minded or excited about innovation, Rally is the place to be. 

Additionally, over 100 speakers are on the program. Keynote speakers range from sports leaders — like baseball legend Alex Rodriguez and race car star Jann Mardenborough — to purpose-driven entrepreneurs like Marcus Lemonis and innovation thought leaders like JoAnn Garbin, the Director of Innovation at Microsoft.

The intention isn’t just for these people to be on stage, but for attendees to actually connect and engage with leaders in their field. To do so, RALLY is hosting 1:1 “Creative Collisions” that are scheduled through the conference app. This is an opportunity — available for all attendees — to intentionally connect and collide with conferencegoers. Whether you’re seeking investors for your startup, looking to invest in the next best thing, scouting for talent to join your team, or looking to engage with innovators and experts, this experience at the conference will help attendees make connections and grow. 

That’s really the goal of RALLY after all: helping people develop relationships, increase their knowledge, discover new innovations, and accelerate their growth.
