EVANSVILLE, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — MAKE IT Evansville is Thursday hosting a soft relaunch at its downtown location.
A ribbon-cutting for what officials are calling “a makerspace with an IoT edge” will be at Innovation Pointe in the city’s downtown.
The makerspace aims to connect local businesses through Internet of Things (IoT) application.
Powered by the Growth Alliance, MAKE IT Evansville is housed in the lower level of Innovation Pointe. The makerspace connects directly to Cowork Evansville and is partnering on a raffle at the event for one free month of dedicated work space.
As a quality-of-place project, partial funding to support the build-out and equipment costs for the connected spaces was provided through Indiana government’s Regional Cities initiative.
The event will include activities, tours of the makerspace and coworking space, a meet and greet with collarboators, and networking opportunities.
