The State of Ohio is reaping the benefits of the Shale Revolution; new business, jobs and revitalization are returning Ohio to its glory days.
In another sign that The State of Ohio is reinventing itself, the historical (1904) Dayton Arcade in downtown Dayton is undergoing a $90 million renova..., including a 90,000 Sq. Ft. Business Innovation Center by University of Dayton Business School.
The University of Dayton and The Entrepreneurs Center have joined in partnership and submitted a letter of intent to become the anchor tenants of the Arcade Innovation Hub and will work together to bring other community, higher education, research and corporate partners into the space.
Scott Koorndyk, president of The Entrepreneurs Center, said: “The Hub will be visible proof that Dayton’s long heritage of innovation is alive, healthy, and growing. It’s exciting to partner with UD to make this iconic space in the heart of downtown more than just a symbol of our history, but a catalyst for the future of our region’s innovation economy.”
The Hub would also include in the rotunda for event space for academic and entrepreneurial programs as well as community events. Also envisioned is a community innovation center for neighborhood businesses and nonprofit ventures, with a special focus on women and minority-owned companies.
