New partners move into Endeavor Center, space still available

By Ryan Mapes
Endeavor Center Manager

Like many businesses and organizations, the Endeavor Center experienced significant challenges during the pandemic.  The doors to the facility were closed while employees worked remotely during the onset of COVID-19.  Through much of 2020 into 2021 the Endeavor Center was closed to the public.

As knowledge of the virus progresses and safety protocols implemented, the Endeavor Center has been able to reopen to serve businesses in Southern Ohio.  Tenants have resumed occupancy of their offices and are following all state, university, and local health guidelines.  

Meeting and training rooms can be reserved for in-person business events, but hours of operation are limited.  It is recommended to plan ahead when requesting use of a meeting room, as there are new reservation policies in place that can take some time for approval. 

The Endeavor Center operated at a 100% occupancy rate for most of 2019, however the pandemic brought both challenges and opportunities.  New capabilities and virtual opportunities are being implemented as more meetings and business activities are being held virtually.  

Since 2019, several partners relinquished office space - fortunately new partners were ready to come on board to fill the vacated offices.  Recent partners that have joined the Endeavor Center include American Income Life Insurance Company, Affiliated Financial Group, FBB Group, and TK Fitness.

Both 400 sq. ft. and 200 sq. ft. furnished office space is currently available for lease to entrepreneurs and start-up businesses.  Easy access to a copier, printer, kitchen area, meeting rooms, and Small Business Development Center counselors are just a few of the benefits when leasing an office in the Endeavor Center.
