MatchBOX is the perfect place for those with creative dreams, whether you’re just enjoying a hobby, in the early planning stages, or in the process of scaling your business.
We’ve got all the resources to help you be the most successful version of yourself without overreaching your budget. One of the best ways is by attending our events - almost all are free and open to the public.
T-6.6 [3rd Thursday of each month] At T-6.6 you’ll learn how to move your business forward and meet new people. You’ll hear the news and most exciting startup pitches from local entrepreneurs, innovators, and friends of MatchBOX. Featuring local startup pitches and conversations with experienced entrepreneurs.
MBXam [1st Wednesday of each month] MBXam is for anyone doing freelance work - whether it’s a full-time gig or a side hustle. Bring your lunch and come prepared to learn with a hands-on workshop. Previous topics have included beating the Instagram algorithm and effective time management.
MBX LAB laser cutting workshop [offered frequently, check the event calendar] Our LAB is full of resources for creating prototypes or just flexing your creative muscles! The laser cutting working is a great way to dip your toe in and learn something new. (If you’re a MatchBOX member, this is also how you get 24/7 access to LAB resources!)
Free Coworking Day [last Friday of each month] Want to try out life at MatchBOX without the commitment? Bring your laptop anytime between 8 am - 5 pm on the last Friday of each month and see what coworking's all about.
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.
"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!”
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.

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!

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.
