Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Students Visit Entrepreneurship Networking Spaces in Indianapolis

January 11, 2013

In October, more than 100 students enrolled in entrepreneurship capstone classes traveled to Indianapolis to experience The Speak Easy and DeveloperTown, where they were treated to a number of speakers and a tour of these innovative and creatively designed work spaces. The Speak Easy was founded in 2012 and has been described as a clubhouse for entrepreneurs, designers, and "geeks" built on the belief that bringing people together in a fun, productive work environment provides the surest way to accelerate the development and launch of high-growth startups in central Indiana.

Adjacent to The Speak Easy is DeveloperTown, a warehouse where every employee/entrepreneur has his or her own small house-like workspace. It is focused on helping companies get their products to market faster and on a stronger technological foundation. This is achieved through collaboration, mentoring, coaching, and technical support and by leveraging the experiences of participating startup companies and seasoned entrepreneurs.
