Cincinnati Startup Community

Date

If you’re starting a tech business in Cincinnati, Ohio these are the people, places, and resources you should not ignore.

cin-sky Cincinnati may be considered “flyover” territory to Silicon Valley and Alley, but to those impacted by the growing vibrance of tech in this city and surrounding region (Northern Kentucky), there’s no question the tides have changed. We’re seeing a lot of positive changes around here; more capital, more mentors, a handful of early-stage accelerators, and “veteran” tech companies to show us the way. The list below is, by no means exhaustive, but it will help you get a good start if you’re looking to get involved in the Cincinnati startup community in the Tri-State region.
