With a high concentration of financial services companies operating in the state, the advancement of fintech through research, technology, and innovation makes Ohio a primary landing spot for financial services and financial technology companies. In Ohio, financial services companies get the same results as investments in coastal cities, but with office rents at a quarter of the cost of NYC and San Francisco, no state income tax, and talent that is one-third of the cost of NYC and San Francisco wages. In Ohio, every dollar goes further, resulting in more capital to invest in Research & Development (R&D) and company expansion.
