An established web-based tech company is moving into the historic Record Box on Carlyle Street in Battle Creek. BCU President and CEO Joe Sobieralski broke the news on the 95.3 WBCK Morning Show with Tim Collins on Thursday morning.
Starting today, August 22, 2019, Ministry Designs, a world-renowned online tech company, is moving to downtown Battle Creek. For almost a decade, Ministry Designs, a web-based communication specialty organization, has been developing websites for ministries all over the world.
Additionally, with their new location, Ministry Designs is launching a new co-working office space in downtown Battle Creek. The new space, Collab BC, will be located on the second floor of the Record Box, at 15 Carlyle Street.
Ministry Designs co-owner Tyler Rominger stated, “While researching other markets, such as Grand Rapids, to move and grow our business, we could not help but notice the uprising of entrepreneurial spirit here in Battle Creek. This made our decision easy to choose to support the initiatives we see occurring all around Battle Creek. We are excited to be part of the momentum and change in Battle Creek and are especially thankful for the generous support we have received from the Battle Creek Community Foundation and Battle Creek Unlimited.”
Collab BC is expected to open November 1, 2019, and will be committed to helping entrepreneurs succeed by offering space to learn, work, gather, collaborate, and create. Access to the secure area will be granted through a membership program. Memberships will be flexible and designed to meet the needs of the community allowing access to the space on either a daily or monthly basis. Conference rooms and soundproof studio space will also be available. In addition, workshops, digital marketing, and other events will be offered in collaboration with community partners such as SecondMuse.
Joe Sobieralski, President & CEO of Battle Creek Unlimited, stated “This is one more critical addition to the downtown Battle Creek revitalization and the entrepreneurial ecosystem. We’re excited to partner and support visionaries like Tyler and Vincent Rominger to locate in Battle Creek in conjunction with the Battle Creek Community Foundation and developers from Restore269.”
