About The Speak Easy

The Speak Easy is a place for Indianapolis-based entrepreneurs, startups, and the folks who support them to work, play, and collaborate.

It's essentially a clubhouse for entrepreneurs, designers, and geeks. We believe that bringing these folks together in a fun, productive work environment is the surest way to accelerate the development and launch of high-growth startups in Central Indiana.

  • What It Is

    • A membership-based club (it's like a Moose Lodge for startups)
    • A combination of a 17th century salon, coffee shop, and science lab
    • Ambitious forward thinking, but efficient and pragmatic
    • An independent non-profit
    • A place for Indy's startup scene to call home
  • What It's Not

    • It's not an incubator.
    • It's not an accelerator.
    • It's not an extension of any existing group or organization.
    • It's not a place for funded startups looking to avoid paying rent.
    • It's not a vehicle to market, promote, or proselytize.
  • What It Offers

    • Common area office infrastructure (furniture, meeting space, restrooms, etc.)
    • Conference room and private meeting spaces
    • Library and gaming center
    • Blazing fast WiFi
    • Secure, monitored access
    • Startup-focused programming and semi-regular events
  • Membership

 The Speak Easy is a nonprofit membership based organization where techies can bounce their ideas around.

"I think we've done a good job with Twitter and Facebook and sites like that of creating digital spaces, but you also need physical spaces for people to congregate and collaborate and be in the same room together," said Co-Founder Jeb Banner.
