The MEC, centrally located at 129 North Main Street in Marysville’s downtown, is Union County’s center for innovation and entrepreneurial development.

The MEC is available to anyone needing help with developing their business concept; business plans, marketing techniques and business strategies.

We also provide physical office space and flexible virtual arrangements ( hotspots).

Small businesses are the fastest growing segment in American commerce and they create 98 percent of all new jobs. However, over 50 percent of all small businesses fail in the first year, often because entrepreneurs fail to consider start-up costs and fixed expenses of operation.

To support entrepreneurship in Union County and foster “grassroots” economic development, the Marysville Entrepreneurial Center (MEC) was created in 2008 in partnership with the Union County Commissioners, Union County Community Improvement Corporation (CIC), Ohio Small Business Development Center, and TechColumbus.

MEC offices and Hot Spots available now!

If you’re seeking affordable office space, including many amenities, please schedule a visit.
