What Is St'art Up 317?
St'artUp 317 is a competitive program that aims to match young brands, established businesses wanting to test a new market, startups and artists, with vacant and under-utilized first floor commercial space in downtown neighborhoods to create pop-up stores. Inspired by similar initiatives across the country St'artUp 317 is being coordinated by Develop Indy in partnership with PATTERN in order to incubating viable retail businesses and long-term tenants, while supporting the creative class and improving the cultural profile of our city. The long-term goal of the program is to eliminate empty storefronts, increase local and visitor consumer spending and ensure that the Downtown neighborhoods continue thriving.
Who Can Apply to be a Vendor?
St’artUp 317 welcomes applications from individuals, organizations or businesses who have an exhibit, a product, or a place-making initiative that can pop-up for 30 days during regular business hours or create an engaging window display that can be enjoyed 24/7.
