Eight years after its founding, TechGROWTH Ohio is launching a newly redesigned website. Now visitors to techgrowthohio.com will see revamped content sections, new and improved graphics, an option to sign up for TechGROWTH Ohio’s newsletter and testimonials, videos and upcoming events.  The new website will reflect TechGROWTH’s mission to serve as a portal for entrepreneurship information and activities in Southeastern Ohio.

TechGROWTH Ohio is a $40 million public-private partnership between the Ohio Third Frontier program, Ohio University and the private investment community. It is one of the Ohio Third Frontier Program’s regional entrepreneurial signature programs designed to provide business expertise, services and investments for start-up companies — in this case, in the 20-county Southeast Ohio area. As one of the premier programs of the Ohio University Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, TechGROWTH Ohio is part of an entrepreneurial ecosystem that includes programs supporting university and regional technology commercialization and small business incubation.

TechGROWTH Ohio has generated $232 million in economic activity since 2007 and nearly 250 new, high-paying jobs in the region. In addition, TechGROWTH Ohio has engaged with more than 850 entrepreneurs, with 525 of those qualifying for intensive operational assistance and more than 88 companies receiving financial support to speed their path toward sustainable businesses, creating wealth, jobs and economic activity in Appalachian Ohio.
