The Polis Center is collaborating with TechPoint’s “SOS Challenge.” The SOS Challenge aims to help 500 Indiana students who lost summer internships due to the pandemic. Students receive a five-week work experience project. Those who complete the program receive $500 each, and a chance at a $25,000 prize purse and virtual presentations to Governor Holcomb and Indiana tech sector leaders. There are 90 teams of five to seven students each. Unai Miguel Andres is serving as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the Community-based Nonprofit category of teams of the TechPoint SOS Challenge and Karen Comer, Neil Devadasan, and Jim Dowling are serving as coaches for one of the teams. TechPoint is part of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP), which brings together chief executives from Central Indiana’s prominent corporations, foundations, and university in an effort dedicated to the region’s continued prosperity and growth. TechPoint came about in 2003 when the Indiana Software Association and the Indiana Information Technology Association merged.
