Whats Issue 1 in Ohio? video explains
Do you like jobs? Are you from Ohio?
Join me, the entrepreneurship, venture capital and technology community of Ohio in support of the 3rd Frontier Program.
50% of the U.S.’s venture capital comes from California. Investment money they have used to develop companies like Google and places like “the Silicon Valley”.
We need some investment here in the midwest to create the next Google. The talent is here, the passion is here, but will Ohio provide its entrepreneurs with the capital and support networks necessary for growth?
My good friend (and future entrepreneur) told me the other day he planned on moving out to San Francisco Bay Area to get out of Ohio and into the startup scene after graduation from Ohio University (disclosure he just also doesn’t like the cold).
However that example sheds light on a much bigger trend of the brain drain that is happening in our state.
Talk to graduating seniors and they want to move to places where things are happening. Places like New York, Charlotte, and California are hot, but so is the entrepreneurship movement in Ohio. (we just haven’t made a big enough buzz yet)
Did I mention the program has a history of 22% return on investment?
