Columbus Leads List of Emerging Startup Cities

Posted: October 2, 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.
