Dayton’s entrepreneurial ecosystem has undergone a growth trajectory from a group of nascent programs and organizations to a united community of support known as Launch Dayton. This growth has led to hundreds of technology-based startups launching and an increase in competition for access to the resources and programs in the community.

Parallax Advanced Research and other Launch Dayton partners will create The Launch Dayton Digital Toolkit, which will accelerate the development of 500 entrepreneurs in a COVID and post-COVID environment by providing digital educational resources that directly align with the requirements of regional programs, resources, and customers to create businesses with strong foundations to provide economic resilience in the face of future economic shocks. The Toolkit will help scale the region’s support and make resources accessible to entrepreneurs when they need it most.

This Toolkit will focus on providing access to local growth resources and three market opportunities within the community:

  • Track 1: Accessing Local Growth Resources
  • Track 2: Connecting with Customers: DoD
  • Track 3: Connecting with Customers: Medtech
  • Track 4: Connecting with Customers: E-Commerce
