coffee shop + office park + garage

MatchBOX is a place to work for those who don't have places to work. Think of a coffee shop mashed up with an office park in an old garage. It's a room full of desks with all the amenities you need to get work done: 24-hour secure access, conference rooms, the fastest internet in town, and an unlimited supply of coffee and snacks.

It's a great place to start a new business, or to grow an existing small business. It's for the hobbyist with a crazy new idea, the moonlighting entrepreneur, or the professional office nomad. It's for developers, designers, strategists, artisans, writers, makers, and change-makers of all types. It's a home for the creative class in Lafayette, West Lafayette, and throughout the midwest.

 

Bring a laptop or a backpack, but leave your tie at home. Find a place to work for a few hours, or reserve your own desk and chair. Put on your headphones and work undisturbed all night long, or ask a desk neighbor for some advice or grab some coffee at the bar with an advisor. The space is about the people there, and we only ask that you be willing to contribute to the success of the others around you.

We have a box. We're looking for matches...people with a dream about to catch on fire. We want to make it easy for you to work, help you collaborate, and stoke the flames.

I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success.

Revisioning the concept of traditional work environments and moving to a collaborative space has been an amazing opportunity for our organization to remain engaged with our constituents and expand our connections in the community.

—Kitty Campbell

"MatchBOX is helping my company (One Fact) survive and prosper. The affordable space is only the start. It is the connection with the other co-coworkers that is proving helpful. MatchBOX gets a share of credit for any success One Fact sees in 2017!”

—Cortland Starrett

MatchBOX is where I met some of my newest best friends, Amanda, Emily, Matt, Ed, and sometimes Ryan. It's conveniently located near Kathy's candies and a bunch of places to get drinks during lunch. Could use a couple more Pokestops though.

MatchBOX has provided an incredible opportunity for getting my work done, collaborating with others (at least 4 projects so far), hosting meetings for organizations I'm part of, and meeting other independent contractors in the area. The feel and ambience of the place just adds to the fabulous workplace -- not to mention the coffee and snacks! I have friends around the country who are jealous of our MatchBox space.

—Johanna Merritt Wu

My Enactus Purdue team got a tour of this studio recently. The environment is outstandingly innovative! Everyone there is incredibly friendly and hospitable and passionate about what they are doing. What a great place to see opportunity in the city of Lafayette!

—Acaimie Catron (from Facebook)

There is such a positive, creative vibe to this space. I participated in Lafayette Writers' Studio events and classes at MatchBOX fall, 2016. It is easy to access, convenient to downtown Lafayette and parking is not difficult in its area of town.
