Keenan Center for Entrepreneurship

Tim and Kathleen Keenan Center for Entrepreneurship

Startup companies are a way of advancing technologies through the injection of private capital. Startups have improved impact when additional funding is generated before the technology is ready for the marketplace or when the technology is considered disruptive to existing industries. Entrepreneurs and venture capital groups work together to use cutting-edge Ohio State technologies to improve our world.

The Keenan Center for Entrepreneurship team is dedicated to creating startup companies by matching Ohio State innovations with experienced entrepreneurs and a full-continuum of funding. Ohio State startups have contributed industries locally, nationally and worldwide, helping to build a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem.
