The newest tenant at Launch Fishers isn’t another local startup business, but hopes to provide service to those 575 members if needed while building relationships at the co-working space.

“We hope to engage our members on the latest technology so that they can continue to maintain a leadership position as they develop for their clients,” Launch Fishers founder and CEO John Wechsler said.

The engagement center features a trio of mounted televisions, a selection of mobile devices on display and a charging station in the heart of the new Launch Fishers main shared workspace near the coffee shop.

“The engagement center will serve as a starting point for AT&T resources, programs and other support mechanisms in the tech and development business community,” Wechsler said. “From morning coffee talks to the weekend Internet of Things Civic Hackathon, we see this as a platform with which to support our tech and innovation-driven entrepreneurs.”

The $20,000 setup is a first for AT&T inside a co-working space. AT&T already provides free DirectTV to Launch Fishers and previously made a $50,000 donation. Launch Fishers purchases its Internet access through AT&T, too.

The Internet of Things Civic Hackathon is the first AT&T program at Launch. It runs from 6 p.m. April 29 to 9 p.m. April 30. For more, visit
