New coworking venture has name, logo
A new co-working site in downtown Lafayette has a name and a logo.
MatchBOX Coworking Studio is located in the Stein Building at the southeast corner of Sixth and South streets.
The space is owned by the Tippecanoe County Public Library, but the city is leasing it for just one-dollar a year.
Lafayette Economic Development Director Dennis Carson says the logo for the new venture is matchsticks and a matchbox.
He says the goal is to bring together creative people who are pursuing new ideas, which could grow into businesses.
Carson says the non-profit organization Lafayettech has been formed to run the co-working site, which is scheduled to open this fall.
And he says Lafayette’s Wintek Corporation will provide a one-gigabit symmetrical Internet connection for the space free of charge.
