Our Mission

The Pantheon’s mission is to develop resources, services, and a community which will foster innovation and help entrepreneurs and businesses prosper in Knox County. 

Our Vision

A vibrant, prosperous Knox County.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit led by a diverse board of entrepreneurs, nonprofit, and government representatives. Our operations are funded by membership fees, event space rentals, and generous donations from corporate sponsors and angel investors from the south-central Indiana region.

Our Historic Theatre

The Pantheon is a renovated 1920’s style theatre filled with over 15,000 square feet of working space located in the heart of downtown Vincennes. The space includes open working spaces, private offices, conference rooms, a kitchen and space for events.

Our History

The Pantheon Theatre was the perfect stop between Chicago and St. Louis for live national and regional performances.

After many years of vacancy and deterioration, INVIN, a local business and arts initiative, began the mission of saving and repurposing the Pantheon. The leadership of INVIN reimagined the theatre as a co-working space and incubator. INVIN transferred ownership to a joint partnership between Knox County and the City of Vincennes, who have since invested in the renovation of the interior of the building. Additional support from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC), Vincennes Redevelopment Commission, and Knox County Development Corporation have helped to complete the extensive interior renovation of the Pantheon.

Pantheon Press Conference

In October 2020, the U.S. Department of Commerce, through its Economic Development Administration announced a $732,000 award for the Pantheon.  This additional investment will pay for extensive exterior renovations and technology within The Pantheon.

The Pantheon opened its doors in the Fall of 2020.

Our Leadership

The organization is headed by our CEO/President, Nichole Like.

The Pantheon Board is composed of entrepreneurs as well as members who bring expertise in economic development, local government, higher education and venture capital.
