Startup moving to downtown Dayton

Tech Town has landed its fifth new tenant this year with a startup company.

Extra Mile Fiber, a Dayton-based high speed data provider, will take about 1,400 square feet at Building II for office and showroom space. The company also is bringing gigabit speed broadband to the complex.

Extra Mile Fiber — which has two employees — brought its gigabit service to Water Street District last year and has been looking to add it in more places. It has partners with Servlet and DataYard to help it expand commercial data services.

“Tech Town is an ideal location to host the Extra Mile Fiber operations due to its proximity to downtown Dayton and our first fiber deployments at the Water Street District,” said Leigh Sandy, founder and CEO of Extra Mile Fiber.

The downtown Dayton technology-focused business park has 40 businesses and about 400 people working in three buildings, which are about 80 percent occupied, prompting developer CityWide Development Corp. to consider options on the future of campus.

This month, data startup 5S For Data moved into Building Two, as biomedical startup Rio Grande Neurosciences Inc. moved into The Entrepreneur’s Center next door. And last month, the Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association, its Ascend initiative and engineering firm CH2M signed leases to occupy the entire first floor of Tech Town’s Building Three.
