TC City Spotlight: Columbus

Columbus used to be just a college town, but is now a burgeoning startup scene driven in part by the science and technology coming out of The Ohio State University, the city’s diverse demographics, and Midwest founders getting back to their roots. All of that has turned this one-time sleeper city into a buzzing hub where fintech and insurance giants leverage a strong tech worker talent pool which is then turning that expertise into new startups amid Columbus’ strong startup ecosystem support. Eclectic neighborhoods paired with a low cost of living gives the city a “Silicon Prairie” vibe that can only grow, which is why we are spotlighting Columbus.
