Matrix Integration honored for impact

From Local Sources

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Small Business Development Center, which is a program of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, honored 14 small businesses — including Matrix Integration, headquartered in Jasper — Thursday for their work to help grow Indiana’s economy and strengthen communities across the state.

Each award winner received business counseling from the Indiana SBDC, which provides entrepreneurs with expert guidance and resources on how to start and grow a business, including strategy development, business planning and valuation, export assistance and market research.

The Small Business Impact Awards annually honor small businesses that received assistance from the organization’s 10 regional offices. Matrix Integration received the Small Business Impact Award in the South Central region.

The company, founded by entrepreneur Brenda Stallings in 1979, is a certified Women’s Business Enterprise and IT solution provider providing technology infrastructure, professional services and lifecycle-managed services. To support its growth, the Indiana SBDC offered location assistance to Matrix Integration, which allowed the company to expand and hire more Hoosiers.

The company now has 80 employees across three locations in Indiana and Kentucky, serving more than 1,000 companies in industries ranging from finance and utilities to higher education and manufacturing.
