Several of the Indianapolis area’s most experienced entrepreneurs and tech executives have joined forces on a digital marketing startup that plans to hire more than 80 workers by 2018. DemandJump LLC was founded earlier this year in Carmel by Christopher Day and Shawn Schwegman, the firm’s CEO and chief strategy officer, respectively. The firm plans to invest $1.2 million to improve its technology and occupy new space as it creates more than 80 new jobs within three years, Day said Wednesday.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. has offered the firm $1.8 million in conditional tax credits and $50,000 in training grants, based on DemandJump’s plans.
The two founders are serial entrepreneurs. Day, 44, was the co-founder and former managing partner of Navidar Group LLC, an investment banking firm that works with technology companies. He also has started and sold several technology-related companies in sectors such as telecommunications, real estate development and energy.
