MWBE News & Events: February 2019

February 5, 2019

TWG Construction Hosts Connection @South Side Event

On January 17, 2019, Indianapolis-based TWG Construction held its second ‘Meet the Developer’ event at the SpringHill Suites’ Southside Works location. In spite of the weather not being on its best behavior, 37 individuals attended the event. Attendees had an opportunity to meet TWG’s project team, network with other attendees and meet URA volunteers.

TWG teamed with Cooks Catering, a local MWBE catering company, to provide refreshments for the event. This was Cooks Catering’s second opportunity to work with TWG. The first was in November 2018 when TWG held its first ‘Meet the Developer’ event for this project.

“Thank you to everyone from the URA that came out to support the xBE job fair for our Connection @ South Side development. We were pleased with the large turnout and made introductions with a number of talented xBE groups. We look forward to taking the project out to bid in the coming months and continuing our relationship with the URA’s MWBE Program.” -Tyler Bowers, development analyst with TWG Development
