Open for Businesses: Endeavor Center has services to help start or grow a business

Ryan Mapes
Endeavor Center Manager

Are you interested in starting a business, but not sure how to start?  Do you need to grow your existing business?  Do you just need office space?  
Come visit the Endeavor Center and visit with one of our knowledgeable business development network staff to determine how we can help.  

The Endeavor Center can provide access to programs such as the Small Business Development Center, Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Export Assistance Network, and the CFAES Center for Cooperatives. The Endeavor Center also has space available for lease. These spaces range from 200–400 sq. ft. general use, furnished offices, an office suite including four small offices, a private conference room, and a small break area, as well as three high-bay industrial type spaces. Tenants have access to high speed internet, phone systems, and office equipment. 

If you do not need physical office space, but need a place to hold business meetings and events, the Endeavor Center has three conference rooms and a 16-station computer lab available to lease for your business’s needs.  These rooms range from a small board room style conference space to a larger space that can accommodate up to 75 attendees. These can be leased for full-day or half-day meetings and catering can be arranged. The conference rooms are utilized frequently by OSU programs, our partners, and outside organizations.

There are currently 16 partner companies that occupy 20 spaces and four virtual partners that occupy the building on a part-time basis, but do not occupy an office.
