Practical funding comes from practical people.

Being an entrepreneur already has a number of incredible challenges. We started Jupiter Peak to give people more than just means to start a business, but an opportunity to share the resources and knowledge from people who have been there before.

Our Mission:

  1. To help entrepreneurs and startups navigate and overcome the initial obstacles often encountered when starting a business through financial funding, business consulting, and guidance.
  2. To create a philanthropic impact in the surrounding Indianapolis community by investing in local businesses rooted in innovation.
  3. To succeed by helping others do the same.

About Mike Simmons

Mike is an entrepreneur’s entrepreneur. As the co-founder and former CEO of T2 Systems, he’s never forgotten the guidance and respect he received from other business owners and he plans to pay-it-forward to the next generation. With over two decades of experience, Mike understands the time, money, sacrifice, and struggle many enterprises go through. And it’s given him a greater appreciation for those looking to begin down the same path. That mentality—guidance, respect, and understanding—is the foundation Jupiter Peak was built on.
