The Digest

Lawncare pros… thoughts?

RC Mower

Hamilton County dropped their latest purchase on social media: An RC mower. This thing looks outrageous so you know we had to look it up. The people need more details. According to RC mowers, they’re for challenging terrain and heavy brush removal. It’s packin 1000 ft of range, and cameras to see where it’s going. You can watch a video of one in action here.

And hopefully you’re sitting down for this stat. Starting MSRP: $62k

2024 Farmers Market

One big thing: Vendor applications open up for the 2024 Farmer’s Market next Monday.

The market is meant to be an accelerator for local food entrepreneurs to grow new businesses. So if you already have a brick and mortar, chances are you won’t get approved. Other than that, the requirements are pretty straightforward. You will have until February 11th to submit your application here.

💭 This is a really unique way to validate your startup idea before going all in. The application and approval process alone will give good insight. The program requires previous vendors to submit their sales data, which means trends are being looked at to improve the market every year. If you get selected, your product probably aligns with that data. Hope this helps to anyone who is on the fence 💪

And if you’re craving going to a market, here are a few going on this winter.

2024 Predictions


Last week, I asked for your bold predictions going into 2024. You did not disappoint. Here’s a few good ones!

❯Zacc thinks the old O’Charleys by 116th/69 is prime real estate for Fishers first Chick-Fil-A

❯ Katherine is praying for someone to take over the old Fry’s building and turn it into a massive roller rink.

❯ Michael thinks the Indy Fuel will go undefeated once they start playing at the new event center. Now that is a bold prediction.

❯ Eva thinks this year will see the least amount of snow.

Pacers 🤝 Spokenote

The Pacers teamed up with Spokenote to put QR code patches on their jerseys. Spokenote is a Fishers-based startup that lets you put a video on a QR code. It’s a neat concept for personalizing things. The Pacers plan to use them on their jerseys to offer exclusive content.
