The Midwest is not just a collection of flyover states. In fact, VentureBeat has 2018 pegged as the best time for Heartland entrepreneurs to thrive—with overall economic growth, stable living costs, and improving access to capital, it’s a good time to start working on your dreams. Coming up through the small-business economy ranks alongside major cities like Chicago and Detroit is Indianapolis. A bustling startup scene, one of the most affordable U.S. office markets, and home to the largest Salesforce hub outside of San Francisco, Circle City even made the Amazon HQ2 short list!

A couple of years ago, Megan Glover was on a coffee date with a friend when the conversation turned to the water crisis in Flint. Glover found herself nodding along. Like a lot of residents of Indianapolis, she was familiar with the topic — Indiana abuts Michigan, and for weeks, it seemed, local media had reported on little else. And yet, as Glover confessed to her friend, a fellow entrepreneur named Chris Baggott, she hadn’t gotten around to testing her own water supply. “I’m not sure where to start,” she said.
“Hey!” Baggott exclaimed. “I think you just stumbled on your next business.”

People tend to smile when they see me.
They smile when I walk into the room. They smile when I play with them. They even smile when I’m napping.
I am the center of attention, yet I can’t speak. I am the smallest being in the room, yet I draw everyone’s eyes. Who am I?
I am Gus, a 3-year-old 75-pound English Cream Golden Retriever and the zWORKS mascot. As far as I know, I’m the only co-working space mascot around.
