Beyond the Pitch

Celebrating Columbus’ National Number Ones


The Columbus Foundation Number Ones campaign

Rev1 is proud to be featured once again in the Columbus Foundation National Number Ones campaign. It is our region’s high-growth startups that truly deserve the recognition.

The founders and teams who are pouring their time, energy and talent into building strong businesses that will change the landscape of our region. It’s the work of dozens of these startups in the Columbus region which has enabled our city to be named the Number One City for Scaling Startups by the Kauffman Foundation.

It’s the hard work and growth of companies like Updox, which has made the Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies two years in a row. Updox was also named 14th on Columbus Business First’s 2015 Fast 50 List.

It’s the hard work and growth of companies like Clarivoy, which in 2016 won the DrivingSales Innovation Cup due to their focus on the customer.

It’s success like these that make Columbus the dynamic, smart, open and growing city is. Let’s keep the number ones coming in 2017!
