In order for the company to receive the funds, Datum must add 50 employees over the next five years. The incentives are a part of Sarasota County's dedication to creating jobs through helping high-tech, top-tier businesses meet their growth potential. The EDC's goal is that these incentives will help strengthen the local economy.
As part of the company's expansion Datum will nearly double its workspace as it relocates to a 12,000-square-foot office located at 6909 Business Blvd. in Lakewood Ranch.
