Launch Fishers says its new, 52,000 square-foot facility is now opened. The coworking space houses the organization’s member base, made up of more than 300 companies.
The facility includes 13 office suites, member workspace, 18 meeting rooms, conference space and a larger coffee shop. In the coming months, Chief Executive Officer John Wechsler says the space will add a bistro with food service and a theater with seating for up to 150 people. He says the larger space and new amenities will allow for "our members to continue to grow and advance their entrepreneurial dreams."
Mayor Scott Fadness says the project is a big step toward his ultimate goal for the city. In a release, he says, "The opening of our new Launch Fishers facility is the next step in creating our smart, vibrant, entrepreneurial city, and I could not be more excited or optimistic."
Late last year, AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) designated the site as being fiber ready. The company says the fiber optic cable will help attract new companies and investment and "ensure the best in fiber-based technology for businesses and industries."
The new Launch Fishers facility is located at 12175 Visionary Way.
