LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A project aimed at keeping young entrepreneurs in Greater Lafayette is set for an early 2014 opening. MatchBOX Co-working Studio will give work space for entrepreneurs.
The space is in the Stein Building on Sixth Street in downtown Lafayette.
MatchBOX is the effort of Mikel Berger of Lafayette Tech, Jason Tennenhouse of Greymob and the City of Lafayette.
Berger said co-working spaces have traditionally been for people with start-up internet companies.
"Software based businesses, internet based businesses are what most people think about when they think of co-working because it comes out of San Francisco," Berger said. "We've talked to all sorts of folks from photographers, videographers."
Berger said the plan was to open the studio this fall. But construction delays pushed it back.
The huge number of tree limbs knocked down across Kokomo when two tornadoes hit the city three weeks ago is disappearing.
Police in Indianapolis say a seventh-grade boy has died after apparently collapsing and being found face down in the snow.
A proposal to eliminate Indiana's property tax on business equipment and machinery has many local government leaders worried about another big revenue hit.
