Looking Back at 2023 – The Rev1 Startup Impact Report

We are excited to launch our 2023 Startup Impact Report!

This report presents a summary of the continuing accomplishments of Central Ohio’s entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors. The companies we have supported over the last 10 years have now surpassed $5B in total economic impact in Ohio, $3B in our region alone.

More milestones we’re excited about:

  • Over 1,000 entrepreneurs have graduated from our Concept to Customer Bootcamp, a three-day market validation program.
  • The clients we support raised $390MM in capital, including 34 companies raised pre-seed capital, 16 raised seed capital, and 19 raised early-stage capital, amid a national downturn in VC activity.
  • Launched our largest fund to date and the third life sciences fund with The Ohio State University (OSU) and Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH), Rev1’s $30MM Catalyst Fund III.

We cannot do the work we do without the ever-present support of the Columbus region at large, our public and private sector partners and our board of directors.

Take a look at our full report and help us celebrate the milestones, major news, and economic impact of 2023!
