The Perks of Being a MatchBOX Member

Published Friday, August 21, 2020

The reasons our members share for joining MatchBOX vary. Our membership is diverse and the benefits of joining can meet a lot of unique needs. 

MatchBOX hosts the remote workers looking for connection outside of a lonely home office. 

The small business owner who needs a space to meet with clients that doesn't involve kids or pets.

People passionate about their hobby and need an after 5pm space to create and explore.

And so on.

The perks of coworking

The obvious perk of coworking is having a space that's just for work. Members who worked from home before joining have share that having a place to work that's distanced from chores, other household members, and normal distractions helps them focus and increase productivity and creativity. 

Our members also talk about friendships, networking, finding mentors and customers and partners and employees, being more integrated in the community, and feeling inspired in a creative space. 

If you can work from home, you can work from here. And reap the additional benefits of membership at a coworking space. 

Speaking of...

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!”

—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.

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.
