Why Ohio? Ohio is second only to New York City for the number of top U.S. bank and insurance company headquarters. Sophisticated, experienced and digital-savvy talent is abundant; a low cost of living compared to other digital hubs means an unmatched cost advantage; and Ohio supports a collaborative banking, insurance and financial services environment to foster innovation across the state. Investing in Ohio means:

  • Easy access to innovation collaboration. A two-hour direct flight or array of transportation options connects you to about 75 percent of the North American financial services industry, including Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 headquarters.
  • Big opportunity, low cost. Commercial rent is ¼ the cost of New York City and employees also benefit from a great lifestyle for less.
  • Bringing talent to your company’s doorstep. Ohio universities produce 35,000 graduates annually - both millennials and not - including innovation leaders in banking, insurance and financial services.
  • Fintech innovation initiatives. Fintech71, a global fintech accelerator focused on entrepreneurial growth in fintech innovation, is based in Ohio. 

Ohio is the premier location for businesses given its financial services, innovation network, abundant tech-savvy talent and top-rated banking business climate.
