Helping Entrepreneurs Build Great Companies

“The Midwest Startup Formula Will Change the Status Quo of Building Businesses.” —TechCrunch

Every great plan starts with a vision. We dubbed ours the Backyard Effect, an ambitious goal of connecting and collaborating in a whole new way. As a collective force, this region has accomplished much.

The region’s reputation as a place where entrepreneurs can build great companies extends beyond Ohio. Columbus was named the #1 City for Scaling Up Startups by the Kauffman Foundation for the second consecutive year. Our city ranked among the top 10 U.S. cities for entrepreneurs and startups by Business.org.

And we are just getting started. Our passion is high. Our future is bright.

Rev1’s investor startup studio combines capital and strategic services to help startups scale and corporates innovate.  We feature fantastic support for entrepreneurs and many opportunities for experts and mentors.

Our goal is to build to $2B in economic impact for Central Ohio by 2019. We are well on our way.
