About Ryan

Ryan Pfenninger is a technology entrepreneur who has spent his career creating transformative software companies. He started and sold his first company from his dorm room at Indiana University, and he’s been focused on growing startups and jobs ever since.

Ryan is a Democrat running for Congress because he believes Hoosiers deserve to be represented by someone who wants to dig in and solve challenges, not become a career politician. If businesses and the rest of our country innovate through collaboration, Washington can too.

Ryan was born and raised in Indianapolis. He graduated from North Central High School and went on to IU in Bloomington. For the past two decades, Ryan has helped design and build products that have impacted the lives of millions of people around the world. He has created many high paying jobs in Indiana with an average salary over $100,000.

In his free time, you'll find Ryan on the golf course, at the gym, or watching his kids play little league soccer. He lives in Carmel with his wife Kristina, son Jack, daughter Kate, and pets Theodore, Franklin, Jo, and Lucy.
