The coworking space will also host the Innovation Masterclass, a full-day event to "better equip individuals and organizations with the critical thinking skills and cultural frameworks needed to drive innovation forward."
"As entrepreneurs in Indy’s fast- paced, growing market, The EnterChange prides itself on partnering with organizations like Centric," said Greg Keyler, managing director of The EnterChange. "It is our mission to not only provide high quality flexible work space alternatives, but also business development networking support. Partnering with Centric means we’re doing our part to support other innovative businesses and like-minded individuals to drive success."
The first event to be held at The EnterChange will be a Behind the Vault Door event February 26.
The EnterChange cut the ribbon on its facility, located east of the Fountain Square neighborhood in Indianapolis, in November.
