More Than $250K Awarded For Groups To Work On Innovation Entrepreneurship

Four local organizations were recently awarded Ball Brothers Foundation grants to the tune of more than $250,000 to build-out spaces and programming that inspires innovation, entrepreneurship, and collaboration inside MadJax, an 80,000+ square foot maker space in downtown Muncie. The grants—awarded to Ball State University, Purdue Polytechnic Institute, Ivy Tech Community College, and Sustainable Muncie Corporation—will support efforts to build better linkages between the four institutions, K-12 schools, and local employers.
