Our Partnership with The Combine
Crossroads top winners and sponsors also get to experience The Combine, an annual Midwest conference on innovation and entrepreneurship in Bloomington, IN. Get the party started April 4 at Crossroads and keep it going with The Combine April 4-6, 2019!
The Combine is the Midwest catalyst for creators, builders & doers to discover new business & technology ideas. It’s a non-profit, volunteer-run event that began in 2010 as a project of the Humanetrix Foundation, Inc., a passionate group of entrepreneurial techies looking to connect innovators in the Midwest.
The Combine has been a springboard for connecting 1500+ passionate individuals over the last 8 years. At The Combine, you’ll learn & network with nationally-renowned entrepreneurs & innovators. The ultimate goal is to see what can be ‘harvested’ from these groups coming together – new businesses, community initiatives, partnerships.
