INDIANAPOLIS - Some of the biggest names and businesses in Indiana's tech sector are coming together to launch an organization to advocate for the industry with state leaders. The Indiana Technology & Innovation Association says it will push for policies to ensure the state has a strong infrastructure for tech companies to start, enough capital for them to grow and enough talent for them to sustain and scale. First Internet Bank Chief Executive Officer David Becker, who will serve as board chair, says the group will give the industry "laser focus on public policy advocacy."

More than 90 companies are part of the organization, including Salesforce, which has its largest office outside of its San Francisco global headquarters in Indianapolis. Marketing Cloud CEO Bob Stutz says ITIA will let the tech companies be proactive "to ensure Indiana continues to be a thriving environment for our industry to grow."
