Developing Tomorrow's Breakthroughs

The Columbus Region has a history of innovation—a history that continues today.

Named the most intelligent community in the world, the Columbus Region is home to R&D operations for major powerhouses as well as startups being developed by talent at the Region’s 50-plus college and university campuses and attracted by a bevy of venture capital.

To top it off, the Region won the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge to define what it means to be a smart city and become a model for other cities.
