The Northwest Ohio Impact Program

Interested in taking your business to the next level? Our Northwest Ohio Impact Program can provide you with the tools.

5 Companies. 12 Weeks. $20,000.

Twice a year, a cohort of five high-potential businesses join the Northwest Ohio Impact Program, an intensive 12-week business assistance program designed to provide focused business advising, industry-specific mentoring and collaborative learning.

Each Impact Program cohort culminates in a demo day-style competition where every participant pitches to a panel of judges for a chance to take home a $10,000 grand prize (all other cohort participants receive $2,500).
