Columbus Leads List of Emerging Startup Cities

Tue, 2nd October, 2018

Forbes magazine picks Columbus at top venture capital city

Columbus as a hot spot for venture capitalists has caught the attention of Forbes magazine.

Forbes has put Columbus atop a list of emerging startup cities, ahead of other big cities such as Atlanta, Philadelphia and Denver.

The magazine, in conjunction with Revolution, a venture capital firm led by AOL co-founder Steve Case, put together the list based on 13 metrics, including the cost of living, entrepreneurship rates, working-age population growth and venture capital investments.

Columbus scored high for its college presence, low cost of living and doing business, increase in venture capital deals and the high number of funds making investments that have been launched since 2013.

Companies such as auto-insurer Root and SafeChain are among those that have caught the eyes of investors.

GUIRR Webinar: Preventing Sexual Harassment in Academia and Beyond

Fri, 24th August, 2018

The National Academies’ Committee on Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine recently released a study on the sexual harassment of women in academic sciences, engineering, and medicine, specifically looking at how it affects the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women in these fields. The report examines the factors that predict high rates of sexual harassment and includes recommendations for addressing and preventing sexual harassment. Evidence reviewed in the study shows that organizational climate is the strongest predictor of sexual harassment in an environment and that it can either encourage or discourage sexually harassing behavior.

Please join GUIRR for a webinar with two members of the authoring committee—Gilda Barabino, dean of the Grove School of Engineering at the City College of New York, and Vicki Magley, professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Connecticut—to discuss why addressing organizational climate is important to preventing sexual harassment and how certain policies and strategies recommended in the report can be applied in academia and industry to prevent sexual harassment.

Thursday, August 30, 2018; 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET

There is no cost to this webinar, but registration is requiredA confirmation email will be issued prior to the event containing the webinar URL.
