    The 614Startups Podcast featuring Kelli Jones, Sixty8 Capital

    Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, Kelli got her start as a business owner running an experiential marketing agency in the entertainment industry. In 2013, Kelli was introduced to the startup accelerator business model and launched Be Nimble Foundation in 2016. Be Nimble is a 501(c)(3) social enterprise with the goal of advancing diversity initiatives to create fully inclusive tech ecosystems. They focus their efforts on workforce development and start-up and entrepreneurship support. Be Nimble helps people gain high-paying jobs in technology and support diverse start-up founders through our accelerators, workshops, and pitch competitions. They are there to close the economic wealth gap and create generational wealth for their community. Through intention, planning, and some serendipity, Kelli partnered with Allos Ventures to launch Sixty8 Capital in 2019. Sixty8Capital is the first Indiana-based Venture Capital firm dedicated to investing in Black, Brown, Women, LGBTQ+, and disabled founders. They use capital, connections, and community to support scalable and investable tech and tech-enabled companies with a clear road to profitability. Kelli and the team at Sixty8 Capital are actively investing in Midwestern startups. Enjoy!
