INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — Officials at the 16 Tech Innovation District in Indianapolis will Wednesday celebrate the grand opening of the 1776 coworking space with a virtual event. Located inside the HqO innovation hub at 16 Tech, 1776 features more than 54,000 square feet of private offices, startup garages, and communal areas.

1776 describes itself a national network of startup incubators, flexible workspaces and programming for entrepreneurs. The network also has locations in Philadelphia and New Jersey.

The virtual grand opening will include a conversation with 16 Tech Chief Executive Officer Bob Coy and 1776 CEO Jennifer Maher, as well as interviews with some of the space’s founding members, including NEXT StudiosBoomerang Ventures, and Triple T Academy.

During a special edition of Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick from 16 Tech last August, 1776 Principal and Advisor Shelton Mercer talked about the vision for the space.
