A new 20,000-square-foot coworking space has opened inside the Convergence Center at Purdue University, offering entrepreneurs a business space to work without having to invest in a brick and mortar location.

Carr Workplaces Convergence is located in the Discovery Park District and offers 68 private offices.

Carr says the co-working space provides students, administrators and faculty with access to a drop-in workspace as well as meeting rooms that will drive innovative team projects.

“Carr Workplaces provides an important component for Convergence Center and all that is happening on the west side of the Purdue University campus,” said David Broecker, chief innovation and collaboration officer for Purdue Research Foundation.  “We anticipate that the space will attract a vibrant mix of companies and startups as well as individual entrepreneurs and innovators.”

This is the first Indiana location for the Washington D.C. based company. It has 29 locations across the U.S.
