Created by Cincinnati’s business community, Cintrifuse is more than just a startup accelerator or venture capital fund. We are a startup catalyst, a public/private partnership that exists to build a sustainable tech-based economy for the Greater Cincinnati region. Our purpose is to advocate for entrepreneurs leading high-growth tech startups– attracting, inspiring, and supporting them on their journey.
Through the construction and maintenance of an Active Network of BigCos, universities, investors, and startups, we are turning Cincinnati into the premier destination for startups and innovation in the Midwest.
To ensure Cincinnati’s future economic relevance and vitality, the Cincinnati Business Committee commissioned a McKinsey study to determine what gaps need to be filled in order for entrepreneurship to flourish in the Greater Cincinnati region. Cintrifuse was created to fill those gaps.
Companies like P&G, Kroger and Western & Southern depend on Cintrifuse to help them source innovation for their business and to grow the region’s startup ecosystem. Ultimately strengthening and bolstering Greater Cincinnati’s economy. Without the support of these and other like-minded companies, institutions, and organization, our work would be impossible.
