Why Ohio?

Park Place Technologies chose to expand in the Northeast Ohio Region versus competitive out-of-state alternatives due in part to a tech-savvy workforce fueled by partnerships forged with universities in the region.

Ohio has a tech workforce of over 295,000 professionals that cost less than on the coasts. Ohio’s software engineers, for example, cost 40% less than California’s. In Ohio, businesses can tap into a deep talent pool that delivers more quality, diversity, and affordability. Colleges and universities across the state partner with companies to provide internship, co-op, research, and full-time opportunities, strengthening the next class of tech talent.
