• Business Showcase & Fundraiser

    Since its launch, Duneland Innovators has reported on innovators and businesses in the area. Now, the site will give businesses the opportunity to meet and network with these individuals, and to also give back to the community.

    The site is proud to announce the Duneland Innovators Business Showcase Event Series. Beginning August 26, these events will connect businesses and their clientele to connect and learn.

    This exciting Event Series has three goals. The first is the opportunity for business clientele to meet other service providers. The second is to give clientele from the area an opportunity to meet new service providers in The Region. And lastly, but certainly not least—as a matter of fact, most importantly—the events aim to raise money for a local charity. The goal is to raise such money through event-based fundraising. This kickoff event will be making it's donations to Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Indiana.

    The first event, taking place August 26, will be in Schererville at AgeLess Medical [Address: 41 US Hwy 41] from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. In addition to meeting vendors from around Northwest Indiana, attendees can make donations to Habitat for Humanity. There will also be a silent auction.

    The event is sponsored by the Northwest Indiana Telephone Company (NITCO). NITCO is a longtime provider of phone, cable television and broadband Internet in the Region, and has more recently undertaken a substantial effort to replace copper wiring with fiber optic cable. 

    Duneland Innovators is looking to open discussions with additional sponsors and charities for future events. Sponsorships are also available at two levels, with all extra costs going to the chosen charity.
