LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Indiana co-working centers have joined forces to create a new agreement, the Indiana CoWorking Passport, which will allow members access to spaces throughout the state.

Seventeen co-working venues and innovation centers have recently joined the Indiana CoWorking Passport. It not only includes traditional co-working venues, like MatchBox in Lafayette, but also extends to innovation centers, like Purdue’s Research Parks.

In this agreement, entrepreneurs who live and work in one part of the state — and are members of their local co-working organization — will be able to work at another co-working site or innovation hub in another part of the state.

John Wechsler, Indiana CoWorking Passport co-founder, said this network recognizes the value of connecting entrepreneurs throughout the state. He said this connectivity supports and builds the entrepreneurial ecosystem throughout Indiana.

“Now, we have a collection of 17 sites throughout the state who have come together to add to our robust and growing ecosystem for startups,” Wechsler told News 18 in a release. “The Indiana CoWorking Passport demonstrates the strong spirit of cooperation and innovation that exists among this important part of the state’s startup landscape.”

The Indiana CoWorking Passport network currently includes these 17 locations:

  • Launch Fishers (Fishers)
  • MatchBOX (Lafayette)
  • The Hinge Bureau (Indianapolis)
  • Velocity (Jeffersonville)
  • The Innovation Station (Evansville)
  • Launch Terre Haute (Terre Haute)
  • The Innovation Connector (Muncie)
  • The Anvil (West Lafayette)
  • The Foundry (West Lafayette)
  • Purdue Technology Centers (West Lafayette, Merrillville, Indianapolis, New Albany)
  • Co-Work Btown (Bloomington)
  • DeveloperTown (Indianapolis)
  • The Outpost (Columbia City)
  • The Speak Easy (Indianapolis)
