New co-working space to come to Carmel
By Anna Skinner
Two Carmel residents and business owners are working together to bring Carmel Business Accelerator to the city.
Carmel Business Accelerator would be a new co-working space that could new businesses get on their feet.
Alex Morozov, the owner of Swan Solutions in Carmel, is building the new co-working space on the entire first floor of his building, which allocates for 6,000 square feet of office space.
“We decided to do something that Carmel doesn’t have yet, a unique idea better than Launch Fishers and much more attractive for startups for people who have an idea and want to bring this idea to reality,” Morozov said.
Morozov said that some people have already showed interest in becoming a tenant of Carmel Business Accelerator. Some of the amenities include office space in Carmel, furnished office space, free WiFi, a front receptionist to serve tenants and access to the Monon trail.
Yet according to Morozov’s partner, Nathan Thornberry, the biggest amenity is Morozov and Thornberry themselves.
“The real thing they are getting is they have two Carmel business owners who have already achieved what they are hoping to achieve so if we can give them shortcuts through counseling and such, that’s the main advantage,” Thornberry said. “They are in an excited environment where everybody is working to succeed, that you can’t get with working from your home or den.”
There will be 24/7 security and free parking as well.
“All the mistakes that they are going to make, Alex and I have already made so we can help them. If they want to grow a business, we can definitely help them.”
The space for tenants is limited to businesses revolving around technology and software. An interview process is required after an application is submitted through carmelbusinessaccelerator.com. The launch date is set for Nov. 1.
