Startup Leader Events
As part of the Buckeye Executive Network, startup leaders have the opportunity to participate in several events throughout the course of the year. The bi-annual startup leader dinner provides the chance to share best practices, create a community and foster growth of university startups. Our technology and company showcase events also provide a chance for entrepreneurs, investors and inventors to interact, connect, and preview Ohio State’s startup portfolio. Inventors and entrepreneurs present brief overviews of their technologies or startup, followed by networking with capital providers, potential customers and talent.
We partner with Rev1 Ventures, a startup studio on Ohio State’s campus that offers capital and strategic services to help startup companies scale. Rev1 aligns innovators and founders with corporate and research partners to access customers and markets, helping entrepreneurs build great companies. Rev1 has $90MM in capital under management, providing a capital continuum from corporate and community partners, as well as the Ohio Third Frontier. Rev1 has been named fourth Most Active Seed Investor in the U.S., according to PitchBook.Learn more about Rev1 Ventures
