The software company is making a significant charitable investment to improve the quality of life for young athletes.

Greenlight Guru, the leading provider of cloud-based solutions for MedTech companies, announces today a charitable investment in an Indianapolis arena and training facility for youth basketball players that provides assistance with academics and life skills. The new Greenlight Guru Arena features multiple basketball courts and a state-of-the-art training facility with experienced coaches and innovative high-tech training equipment typically reserved for professional athletes.

“Our investment in the Greenlight Guru Arena aligns with the overall mission of our business to improve the quality of life”, says David DeRam, CEO of Greenlight Guru. “Our software helps medical device companies bring their life-changing technologies to market. The success of our business has enabled us to make this significant charitable investment in the Arena and training facility to help improve the lives of many of these young athletes.”

Greenlight Guru was founded in 2013 and has experienced tremendous success over the past ten years. In 2021, growth investment firm JMI Equity invested over $120 million in the company to help the business further innovate its software solutions and expand globally. Today the company has over 1,150 customers worldwide, and its software is ranked #1 Quality Management Software in its category by G2. Greenlight Guru has also been named by the IndyStar as a Top Workplace four years in a row.

“The Greenlight Guru Arena has totally changed my life,” says Evan Haywood, Class of 2024, who has committed to Butler University. “I could have never had access to this kind of facility and coaching without it. It has set me up for success in the future.”

In partnership with The Progeny Foundation, the mission of Greenlight Guru Arena is to improve the quality of kids’ lives by providing high-quality educational opportunities via academic and athletic scholarships. 

During their inaugural season at Greenlight Guru Arena, Class of 2024 players received scholarship offers from top-tier NCAA Division I Universities, including Butler, Miami, Dayton, and many more. 

“As a successful Indianapolis-based business, it’s important for us to give back to the local community,” says DeRam. “We have a massive vision for this program that spans multiple decades. We believe that the Greenlight Guru Arena will help these great young athletes become better people, achieve more success, and perform at a higher level at everything they do on and off the court.”
