Ohio is a place where you don’t have to make the choice between a successful and fulfilling professional life and a successful and fulfilling community life. It’s home to a unique culture for all Ohioans and their visitors to enjoy.

linkedin-two-hour-flight-mapTeam spirit is shared across Ohio with a number of professional sports teams, including the Cleveland Browns (NFL), Cincinnati Bengals (NFL), Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA), Cleveland Indians (MLB), Cincinnati Reds (MLB), Columbus Crew (MLS), and the Columbus Blue Jackets (NHL). Ohio is famously known for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, which features the works of artists, producers, and other influential celebrities.

In addition to numerous nature-filled parks, Ohio is full of family fun at amusement parks Cedar Point and King’s Island. If the nightlife is more your scene, Ohio is home to a number of restaurants, bars and breweries. Due to COVID-19, almost all of these activities are in the process of reopening to the public.

Ohio’s major universities - The Ohio State University, Case Western Reserve, University of Akron and the University of Toledo, and more – look forward to safely welcoming students back to campus for a semester of educational exploration and innovation.

Ohio is an extraordinary and diverse state, located in the center of America’s heartland and just a day’s drive from 60 percent of the North American population. Here in Ohio, businesses large and small, entrepreneurs, and innovators can realize their goals. Every day we are building on our history of innovation, entrepreneurship, and hard work to move Ohio forward.

As the 21st largest economy in the world, and the seventh largest in the United States, our strong business climate and diverse workforce support a variety of industries from manufacturing to agriculture, and from healthcare to aviation and energy.

Ohio’s vibrant city centers, natural parks, and world-class arts, sports and entertainment provide a quality of life that is second to none. Whatever you are looking for, you can find it here in Ohio.

Collaboration is at the center of our success. Working with JobsOhio, we continue to build a world-class workforce with the skills necessary to propel the state’s economy forward. 

Led by a board of directors who are stakeholders in business, real estate, higher education, and the military, JobsOhio is the state’s private economic development corporation. Building on our historical strengths, JobsOhio’s industry sector teams collaborate with six regional partners and local economic development organizations to identify how Ohio can empower your business and help it grow.

Together with JobsOhio, we are building a strong economic development strategy for Ohio and a strong foundation for growth. We are committed – as is JobsOhio – to serve all Ohioans, and provide opportunity across Ohio from large cities to our small towns and villages. We are working every day to provide opportunities for economic growth, and investing in infrastructure, broadband internet, and education.
