In another corporate milestone, Infinity Labs received the 2022 Dayton Business Journal ‘Rookie Business of the Year’ award as part of the publication’s annual Business of the Year program. According to the nomination requirements, a “rookie” business is one operating within the first five years of incorporation. Accepting the award on behalf of the company, Chief Product Officer, Kurt Glendenning, highlighted the excitement and meaningfulness of the honor as one of many on the Infinity team hailing from the area. According to Glendenning, “as someone who was born in Dayton, Ohio, raised in Vandalia, a graduate of Butler High School, and a two-time grad from Wright State University, I could not be more personally proud of this achievement and honored to accept this award on behalf of our company.” Glendenning went on to thank Infinity employees for the hard work and their families for the steadfast support stating, “they are the ones that truly give Infinity Labs its reputation and provide the backbone to enable us to realize our vision with the company.”
Infinity would also like to recognize the Dayton Business Journal for the marketing and advocacy they continually provide for local businesses as it their support and platform the helps drive top notch talent to our team.
Infinity Labs proudly accepts the honor of being the 2022 Dayton Business Journal ‘Best Place to Work’ category winner. The 24 Ohio employees responded unanimously with top scores and feedback in every conceivable category. Of particular importance, Infinity’s Ohio-based team cited “constant clear and transparent communication”, the best rated benefits and incentives of any company in the micro business category, and top rated senior leader engagement and trust. Several Infinity employees also noted peer comparisons with friends and/or colleagues at other companies made them appreciate the many every day-to-day benefits including variety of challenging work, innovative brainstorming sessions, and “fundamental sense of community across multiple work environments and locations.”
Infinity Labs is proud to share our vision to build a world class R&D and prototyping facility in Dayton, Ohio. As part of Infinity’s commitment to the Gem City and Ohio, the Power House will serve as a catalyst for economic growth and workforce development among census tracts in need of attention and development. As a central pillar in the vision, Infinity will build and scale local technical talent with support from many valued partners including local, regional, and state organizations, businesses, and universities. Through the help of these partners and organizations like Jobs Ohio, Infinity Labs sees an opportunity to make Dayton a national leader in community-based job training, upskilling for job growth and the reduction of economic disparities through purposeful and deliberate workforce development. Future updates on this project are forthcoming and will be available in the ‘news’ section of our website.

We are excited to announce not only one but two Agility Prime Phase II awards! The first effort will focus on Urban Air Mobility for satellite communications connectivity while the second effort will focus on emerging battery technologies.
