Muncie Coworking Space Under New Name

Posted: Updated:
MUNCIE -

A Muncie-based coworking and office space had rebranded itself. The space once known as The Downtown Business Connector will now be known as The CO:LAB.

Jennifer Greene with The CO:LAB says the change is meant to reflect an evolution for the space. She says The CO:LAB aims to give entrepreneurs and professionals with an affordable work space in a collaborative community.

"Our space has grown and emerged over the last year, and we felt it was only fitting to embrace our defined personality. We have refreshed our brand to reflect who we are as a collective community and to symbolize our dynamic future," said Greene. "At The CO:LAB, we’re not just building physical space for new and ongoing businesses, it’s more than that; we are giving our members the tools to make something of their companies and join a rapidly expanding community of thinkers and doers."

The CO:LAB originally launched in 2014 and recently added several new startup and existing businesses to Muncie's downtown district. It is one of 35 established coworking spaces throughout the state.
