Startup & Tech


The Cincinnati region represents the #1 startup ecosystem in the state and #18 in the entire country - ahead of such cities as Boston, Seattle, Portland and Chicago - according to the highly regarded 2017 Kauffman Index on Startup Activity. Our region has a history of turning startups into Fortune 500 companies dating back to 1837 when William Proctor and James Gamble created a family-run soap and candle-making business that grew into the largest consumer goods company in the world, Procter & Gamble.

Our strength lies in our combination of financial resources, innovative and collaborative leaders, and affordable lifestyle.
