Purdue University announced Wednesday (June 24) that Beck’s Hybrids, a family-owned and -operated seed company, intends to open a satellite location in Purdue’s Discovery Park District.
Officials from Beck’s worked with Carr Workplaces – a pioneer and leader in the co-working industry – to establish a location in the Convergence Center for Innovation and Collaboration. Convergence is located in Discovery Park District, adjacent to the Purdue campus.
“This location will provide opportunities to increase our collaborations with the university, the Purdue Foundry and innovators in agricultural research. A location in Purdue’s Discovery Park District gives Beck’s access and exposure to high-quality talent,” said Scott Beck, President of Beck’s.
With the new space, Beck’s intends to partner with Purdue faculty and researchers from across campus, representing different colleges and multiple disciplines.
