Let our Indyfluencers give you the inside scoop on the Indy region.

The best way to learn about the Indianapolis region is from the people who call it home. Here you can find and connect with local residents from all across Indy who share your passions and ambitions.

Moving to another city is a difficult decision. We all hope to find a community where we can belong, but you can’t really know what to expect until you live there yourself. That’s why our Indyfluencers are here to help! Indyfluencers are volunteers who love living in Indy and want to share that love with others. They work in diverse industries, pursue their unique interests, and come from all walks of life—and they all look forward to meeting you!

Our Indyfluencers are happy to answer your questions and discuss their first-hand experience of what it’s like to work and live in the Indianapolis region. From the best local restaurants to community activism, they’re deeply involved in the Indy community and always excited to share what they love about their home. You can directly connect with any of these Indyfluencers one-on-one, ask your questions about life in Indy, and learn what it means to be a Hoosier.
