Beyond the Pitch

Giving Thanks to Columbus on Giving Tuesday | The Start Fund

Giving Tuesday

As we head into the holiday season and towards the new year, we want to send a note of thanks to the Columbus community.

We are thankful for committed and talented entrepreneurs, strong partnerships, and the many individuals who devote their energy every day to supporting the startups that continue to put Columbus on the map as an innovation hub. Together, we are shaping the future for our families, our region, the state of Ohio, and beyond.

We are fortunate to live in a special place, where people work together, and collaboration is the norm.

There’s a great way for each of us in the startup world to say thanks with a financial contribution to START, the Columbus region’s first-ever entrepreneur giving fund.

START provides entrepreneurs and startup teams a collective and efficient way to contribute financially to non-profit organizations in STEM education, workforce development, connection communities, and sustainable food solutions.

This is a great opportunity for us to give back to the community that supports our innovation.

Help the next big idea for helping our community. Contribute here.
