I Started Downtown

At the heart of Dayton’s comeback are talented people taking risks and shaping our city. You can find their stories in locally run coffee shops, coworking spaces, entrepreneurial hubs, artist spaces, brewery tasting rooms and the kitchens of local restaurants. A groundswell of entrepreneurial and creative activity is changing Dayton.

Seeing these efforts and appreciating their impact, a team of volunteers and community leaders set out six months ago to identify new projects and strategies that would help more people start downtown. More than 100 people, including a mix of downtown entrepreneurs, artists, and creatives contributed to this project. This is the Start Downtown initiative. 

This campaign is a product of that work which tells the story of these people launching new endeavors in downtown Dayton. There are numerous examples of people making great things happen in Dayton – many of them are under the radar and under-appreciated in the impact they are having in this city. Telling the story of the people launching businesses and new endeavors in Dayton (and why our city was a good place to do it) rewards risk taking and will ultimately help us better attract and retain top talent. "I Started Downtown" video series and social media campaign celebrates the entrepreneurs and creatives who are having an impact downtown. The series will feature two videos per month for four months and will spotlight the diverse cross section of people making things happen downtown.

Earlier this year, almost 100 people came together to begin an initiative to help more enterprising Daytonians start downtown. This initiative promotes the people and their stories who are changing Dayton and why they are launching their endeavors here.
