For nearly a decade, MORTAR has been laying the foundation for Cincinnati’s underestimated entrepreneurs. Now is the time to take our next revolutionary step: Creating an entrepreneurial hub in Walnut Hills for small business owners and the community in and around Cincinnati to test out ideas, connect, and collaborate.⁠

With completion set for next year, the Durner Building will serve as an entrepreneurial hub for entrepreneurs in and around Cincinnati and become a cornerstone within the Peebles’ Corner historic district. This project will truly change lives, providing space and opportunity for many aspiring entrepreneurs in the region.


Learn more about how MORTAR is transforming this 1912 gem into an entreprenerial epicenter; paying homage to the rich history of Walnut Hills & ushering in the next era.


We wouldn’t be where we are without our awesome partners.

A lot goes into building a community, and we wouldn’t be where we are now if we’d tried to go out and do it alone. During the past couple years, we’ve developed some pretty amazing relationships with our partners, financial contributors and supporters – and it’s this team effort that enables us to reach more people, in more communities with even more more of an impact.  There’s still a lot more that we want to do, so we’re always searching for more people and organizations to build with us. There are so many moving parts to this plan that we’ve decided to roll out a blueprint of our needs here. It’s our hope that you will join us in building the next generation of Cincinnati Entrepreneurs!
