One of the greatest pleasures of working at a place like MatchBOX is getting to interact with a wide range of businesses. Whether we bump into each other at the coffee station or have more intentional meetings at events, we're constantly interfacing with some of Greater Lafayette's best and brightest.
But we know that meeting great people and cultivating relationships can take a ton of time you don't always have.
So we wanted to help.
Introducing the Greater Lafayette BIPOC & Women/NB-owned Vendor List, a round-up of BIPOC & Women/NB-owned businesses in the Greater Lafayette area that come recommended from the community. From photographers to catering to legal and financial help, we're compiling an ever-growing list of resources to help you support Indiana businesses when you need help yourself.
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.
