Anderson, Ind. — Former Anderson Business Incubator (ABI) client Community Networks justcan’t stop growing! Having been in the ABI for the last year and a half, the company has moved to new offices in the Flagship Enterprise Center (FEC). Community Networks began operating out of the FEC on May 1st.
An increase of staff size is the main reason why the move to the Flagship is necessary, says owner Tammy Rimer. More room for the company to expand and grow, coupled with more resources available to them through the FEC, makes the new location very appealing to Community Networks. “The FEC offers many great networking and business resources that already have and will continue to help with the growth and success of our business,” says Rimer. Business for Community Networks looks promising in the future, especially with the opportunities that will come from being in the FEC. “The location is key,” says Rimer, “as it makes our doing business outside Anderson much more attainable and more convenient for our Hamilton county and Marion county venues and clients.” She continues, “It also helps us begin our desired growth towards the Muncie area.”
“This is a great example of how the Anderson Business Incubator and Flagship Enterprise Center can work together to incubate and accelerate the growth of new businesses,” said DeWayne Landwehr, Executive Director of FEC, and manager of the ABI. “The ABI was just the right place for Community Networks to begin, and now that they have reached this stage in their business growth, it makes sense for them to move on to a larger facility, and into a higher-tech environment. They are, and will continue to be, good corporate citizens in this community as they grow out of the FEC and into the community.”
Community Networks was started by Tammy and Todd Rimer to provide Madison and surrounding counties with marketing tools to strengthen their clients’ visibility within the community. While specializing in digital signage for advertising venues, they also offer a variety of graphic design choices.

Created through a partnership between Anderson University and the City of Anderson, the Flagship Enterprise Center serves as a small business incubator and growth stage business accelerator. Through its client-specific Client Support Program, the FEC helps emerging companies to become independently viable. Located at I-69 and (exit 22) in Anderson, the FEC provides ongoing contact with management consultants, university researchers, student mentoring opportunities and access to capital. The FEC also provides technical and managerial support to the Anderson Business Incubator.
