BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Nov. 16, 2020) – Civic Champs, a social enterprise startup that streamlines volunteer management for nonprofits, announced plans today to expand its operations in Bloomington to support the growth of its platform. The company, which has already hired four full-time positions toward its goal, plans on creating up to 30 new jobs over the next several years.

“As a state, we’re committed to fostering and encouraging an entrepreneurial ecosystem that ensures companies like Civic Champs have access to the resources and capital needed to grow,” said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger. “We’re excited to support Civic Champs’ success in Indiana as the company continues to scale its volunteer experience platform and create more career opportunities for Hoosiers.”

Founded in May 2019, Civic Champs recently participated in two accelerator programs, MassChallenge and Techstars, helping fuel a pre-seed funding round led by local investors, the IU Angel Network and Elevate Ventures, Indiana’s venture development partner, that will bring the company’s to-date funding to $1 million. Now, Civic Champs is set to expand and is evaluating options for growing its footprint as the company outgrows its current space at The Mill in Bloomington.

KSM Location Advisors is pleased to have negotiated $280,000 in incentives for Civic Champs.
