Every brand has a story of how it came to be. The story represents a company’s personality and values. Here’s the brand story of how The EnterChange became our brand.

The Arrows: Coming Together, Creating Synergy

Our logo reflects our passion to bring together active and engaged entrepreneurs at every stage of business from all around Indy. When you look at our logo, you see four arrows coming together to form an intersection within the negative space and create a larger unit with the positive space.  The four arrows also represent the different types of space within our 20,000 square foot facility. The EnterChange provides open coworking space, private offices, meeting and training rooms, and even a fun event venue!

We want our coworking space to be an interchange where people come together to exchange innovative ideas and swap business tips and tricks as well as business cards. We want this coworking, office and meeting space to be a hub of networking and productivity, creating synergy for our members.  Synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts. We provide a professional and collaborative working environment where entrepreneurs can focus on driving creative results for their business.

The Colors: Friendly, Engaging and Professional

The colors of our logo represent the engaging environment we encourage and the creative mix of professionals we want to attract. Bright blue is for trust and dependability; our team is here to serve you. You can count on us to provide a professional, secure place to develop your business. We want members to trust and count on each other too. Purple is for the creative spaces where your imagination can flourish. Orange is for the friendly and cheerful atmosphere we provide so you can feel comfortable to network with others. Last but not least, yellow stands for warmth and optimism; we are committed to supporting a positive, professional community for our members to succeed.

The Name: Providing Customers Spaces to Grow & Change

The EnterChange – it’s a variation of “interchange” to make our URL and brand unique. Interchange is an intersection, a hub, a place where people can meet and interact. We want our members to enter and make a positive change for their business. We know flexibility and affordability are critical to providing a comfortable environment where entrepreneurs can grow. That’s why our mission is to provide entrepreneurs with affordable coworking space that aligns with the life cycle of your business. We can flex our spacing options from temporary to long-term based on your evolving needs. So, members can enter here at one level and change to another level as their business develops and grows.

Come see for yourself. Give us a call to schedule a tour. We’d love to welcome you to be part of The EnterChange brand story.

The EnterChange is officially open for business. Co-owners Gregory Keyler and Douglas Pillow will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 8, 2018 to formally introduce the new coworking space to the business community. The EnterChange grand opening will start with networking and refreshments, then proceed with welcoming remarks and introduction of the keynote speaker, IEDC President Elaine Bedel. The ribbon cutting and tours of the newly renovated facility will immediately follow.

“We are extremely excited to have IEDC President Elaine Bedel be our keynote speaker,” says Keyler, managing director of The EnterChange. “She will present an Indiana economic update at 4:45 p.m., including trends related to start-up business and new businesses coming to our great state.”

The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 3960 Southeastern Avenue. Free parking will be available onsite for public use.

The EnterChange provides entrepreneurs with engaging and affordable coworking spaces, private offices and meeting/event space. The EnterChange is a 20,000 square foot coworking environment located just eight minutes from downtown Indianapolis.

“We want to help entrepreneurs like us who need a convenient office space close to downtown without the hassles of parking or higher fees often associated with the downtown location,” says Keyler.

The idea to develop a flexible office and meeting space center began two years. The team noted how the open coworking/flexible office concept was taking hold in Indianapolis. They also closely followed efforts to revitalize the southeastern corridor of Indianapolis with a planned 140-acre development of the new Indianapolis Community Justice system by 2022.

“Because of the building’s location we knew we had an opportunity to be on the forefront of helping revitalize the southeast side of Indianapolis,” states Keyler.

The team renovated the 3960 Southeastern Avenue building into a modern, professional office center. Now they are ready to rent this unique coworking space to fellow entrepreneurs. Membership fees are generally based on month-to-month rentals, although alternative hourly rates are available.

“Our goal is to bring together active and engaged entrepreneurs at every stage of business with the tech community and local university resources,” remarks Pillow.
