“Between team, talent, the cost of living, the great schools here and the support of JobsOhio, we can’t think of a better place to be a start-up,” said Beck Besecker, CEO and co-founder of Marxent.
Marxent, founded in 2011, also has offices in Tampa, Fla. and Detroit. Once based in Kettering’s Miami Valley Research Park, Marxent announced a move to Austin Landing last summer, a move that was complete by November.
The company creates content management software and platforms in the $100 billion virtual reality and augmented reality markets, adapting those technologies for the homes and home furnishings markets.
